Funkee Boy — Philosoulphy

A truly eclectic CD showing off all manner of smooth jazz tastes, rhythms, vibes, and styles, Philosoulphy, the sophomore release from the talented producer/keyboardist Funkee Boy encompasses much to enjoy.

Funkee Boy has enjoyed comfortable chart standings and success with such hits as “Bliss” by guitarist Robert Harris, “Listen Don’t Listen” from sexy vocalist Leila, as well as “Sexy Saxophone” with Leila and Eric Darius, and “Table for Two” by Marty Q. His debut release, Rise found a few tracks like “Body Music,” Soul Dance,” and “When You’re Mad” hitting the charts, as well.  So, the artist is no stranger to producing hit material.

This particular album hints of an interesting mix of some of the instrumental tracks of the U.K. acid jazz icons Shakatak, today’s typical movin’, groovin’ contemporary jazz, the old school soul funk years (check out the jammin’ cover of L.T.D.’s “Back in Love Again”), some sweet, mellow soul vibes, some neo-soul, and even sports an all-out rousing tribute to the ‘70s iconic horn-heavy R&B band Tower of Power. All of this and strings, too! How’s that for diversity?? Read More
