Today’s heat comes from a band you may not have heard of by name, but may recognize the sound, as it’s made up of some of the best funky players around. Scone Cash Players, who are lead by veteran organ player Adam Scone (Sugarman 3) and have put out a few heaters on 45 in the past are back with a new record “Year Of The Rooster” on Flamingo Time and put out on Miami’s Mango Hill Records. Featuring Ian Hendrickson-Smith (The Roots!, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings) on sax, Jason Joshua on guitar, Eddie Garcia on drums, and Jose Pena on percussion, this double sider of organ funk is well, funky as hell. “Year Of The Rooster” is an organ fueled jazz funk tornado that builds with Hendrickson-Smith’s sax wailing and Scone’s organ building up to a frenzy. This is definitely not a track for the wall flowers, it commands you to get up, get moving, and get involved, ya dig? Proper organ funk at its best. The flip, “Dos Phoenix Part 1 + 2” a mod-boogaloo classic hits hard and stays that way throughout. If you are a fan of organ jazz funk, Hammond sounds, or just like your funk peppered with organ throughout, this is the record for you. Two solid sides. Check out the music below:
