    Who Got De Funk ? LP (1973)

    Andrew's Music

Andrew White was quite the character on the DC / Maryland jazz circuit during the 70s and 80s.  There were rumors he traded porn with DC jazz piano great Hilton Felton instead of paying him for sessions, and vise versa.  Around the early 2000s MASSIVE amounts of Sealed stock of this independent private press by White surfaced and the beat digging community went wild.  Funk breaks + Private Press + Sealed = digger orgasm?  The title track " Who Got De Funk?" is a 8 minute voyage through tepid Prestige jazz funk only to unleash itself at the 2 minute mark and get loose.  It's a fun track. I've never heard the rest of the album.  So, I can't comment, but I heard it's more like spiritual jazz.  He later revisited his funky title cut in 1981 with the live album Fonk Update.
