I was listening to Tower of Power the other day and an interesting (or nerdy) thought struck me. I remember a great quote from James Brown- "in funk, treat every instrument as a drum". Check this out in relation to doc Kupta's baritone playing, he's incredibly percussion, brilliantly rhythmical and very unmelodic- this is baritone sax played as if it were a set of congas….. no particular point to this post, just an observation.

I wonder how many times I can thank Jules for his useful posts....? And has he any useful crossbars going spare.....;}

Kind regards
Tom:cool:

And thanks for your very useful post - at least I can understand why my improvisations are commonly quite rhythmic, rather than wandering/random. I have the Funk, as Dennis Rollins once said........
