(go back in my posts for more detailed info). we as a whole didn’t appreciate his greatness while it was here & what he was trying to do for our people. like i said go back in my posts for more detailed accounts of what went down & my opinions of them. still, it’s always love from me for #thekingofpop. jovial born dia to the king. peace.

'get the funk out ma face', 'aint we funkin' now' are two more jams that come to mind. their cover of #shuggieotis jawn 'strawberry letter 23' is straight funky. i think my pops has that 12" on the translucent red vinyl but his work is all over songs that are hits beyond his work w/ his brother. the jams 'p.y.t.', 'billie jean', 'dont stop til you get enough', 'off the wall', 'get on the floor', 'i can't help it' are some of the cuts he did for mj, via q ( #quincyjones). you may not know this but 'i keep forgettin' by another one of my heroes, michael mcdonald. so in turn, 'regulators' by nate dogg & warren g. 'nothing from nothing" & 'will it go round in circles' by billy preston. 'love x love' by george benson is another one of my favorites from him. so much greatness from a truly funky individual. respect the musicians on those records. his signature sound is from the music man #stingray bass which leo #fender especially made for him to first use & promote deriving from his #incomparable slapping technique, as seen here. his pockets were/are genius. he is without question one of my favorite bassists. for musical #education / #history, follow 👉🏾 @thesampleacademy ( #pressplay + #tapforsound).
