Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 10
Some folks love collards and cornbread, others dig gravy and grits; but this mix - my dear friends - is the tastiest biscuit you'll find this side of your mama's oven. And the jam...
This is some funky ass shit. I have been working and reworking this mix for over two months; punching up the groove, muscle-building the bass lines, and framing the absolute best musical performances.
I dare you not to dance.
Most of these songs are from the 70's, starting with some classic funk, then shifting through the New Orleans stylings of The Meters into some deep, funky jazz from Billy Cobham and Eddie Henderson. The arrangements and the musical performances on these jazz tunes boggles my brain. They almost have a psychedelic quality.
Next, it's downtempo for Leon Haywood's sultry I Want'a Do Something Freaky To You ahead of a rump-shakin' finale of Willie Hutch, Barry White, and The Bar-Kays.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the classic tunes by Earth, Wind, & Fire, Maceo, and Teddy Pendergrass.
This mix is so sweet, I'm sure you're gonna hit repeat.
