The title says it all. This episode is full of funky jazz tunes. Funk takes many forms and we will explore some examples. Beginning with Les McCann's timeless expression of outrage. Then from Jazz/Rock fusion of the 70"s to new music that continues the tradition of blending jazz artistry with electronics and funk beats. Finally Dave Liebman pays homage to the man that innovated fusion.
