Soulful Thrill & Funky Chill

A little bit of this and a little bit of that, but always in a funky, relaxed mood, that’s what funky chill basically is. I’m glad to put a track in from the latest album by Bryan Ferry. Just like soul singer Maxwell, I’m a huge fan of his work, especially of his output from the late seventies to the mid-eighties. His new album ‘Olympia’ refers to his best period and again Nile Rodgers (Chic) plays guitar. Have a listen, if you can. Speaking of good albums, thanks to DJ Dazler for sending me a copy of ‘Lost in time’ from Eric Benét. His tribute to seventies soul is probably the best album of 2010. The fantastic new one from Drop Out Orchestra came out last week. And there are no Christmas records in the tracklist, I guarantee it! :-) So enjoy! The couple on the left are Peaches & Herb.
