Carolina Funk

A 20 track funk album (1h 10m 45s) — released September 1st 2009 on Jazzman
Jazzman records continues its quest to uncover the best and rarest Funk ever recorded, and after the success of last year's 'Florida Funk', we've moved up the Atlantic coast to look at the vibrant and original scene in the two rural states of North and South Carolina - collectively known as the Carolinas. Bordering the Bible belt, the Carolinas share the hidebound reputation of neighbouring Tenessee - and without any large urban centres, much of the musical output of the Carolinas has been limited to single towns, with bands and their records seldom venturing further than the state line. Funk 45 label boss Jazzman Gerald and resident North Carolina collector Jason Perlmutter have selected 22 of the rarest and most coveted examples of heavy funk from the Atlantic Coast to show the world there is more to the Carolinas than tobacco plantations and venus fly traps! From inspired percussive instrumentals to heartfelt slabs of soul; from rediscovered tapes in the garages of retired musicians to funk 45s so raw that they were blessed by James Brown himself - this is Carolina Funk!
