Fat Mama

Image hosted by
A tasty bit of jazz funk tonight, Woody Herman's cover of a Herbie Hancock's "Fat Mama" Heavy on the groove, "Fat Mama" has plenty of brass (mucho brass), electric piano, and some wah-wah back there in the mix. And let's not forget the bassist who is spot on throughout. This tune sounds like it would be perfect for a volume of 'Pulp Fusion', if it's not already on one. But I digress.....this 45 is all about the interplay of the horns and electric piano over that dense yet tight groove. The electric piano grounds it while the horns reach ever higher.....what a pleasure to sit back and enjoy.......
