About the Album

Combining the polish of Top 40 with the smooth feeling of 60’s soul and the raw groove of 70’s funk, Phat Phunktion is a nine-piece horn-driven tour-de-force that embodies the electricity of Tower of Power, Chicago, The Meters, Parliament, and Earth Wind & Fire. The band's undeniable chemistry hits its stride with the rump-shakin' boogie of "Don't Destroy the Funk," as the nonet gleefully unleashes six minutes of horn heaven. “Live at the High Noon" is set for release on June 2.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
