Around the Blogs: Funky 16 salutes the Electric Piano

Feb 16, 2010

I've blogged before about one of my favorite music blogs, "Funky 16 Corners", where soul/funk/jazz DJ and crate crawler Larry has been putting up some of the funkiest sounds anywhere on the internet. In addition to individual song or artist posts, he's created full downloads of 10-15 songs thematically grouped. He's up to 81 volumes, and Funky 16 Corners Radio's latest installment is a must have for any fans of electric piano jazz. I should point out that besides haveing excellent taste in his selections, he writes insightful and valuable commentary on every post.

Click here to go to "Funky16Corners Radio v.81 – The Piano Electrified", a brilliant collection of songs from the likes of Eddie Harris, Lonnie Liston Smith, Mose Allison, Bob James and Ramsey Lewis. If you like it, go to his archives and be awed by the treasures that await.
