Tower of Power Horns – Soul Vaccination

These guys make it look so easy. No rhythm section save clapping and these guys are tiiiiiggghhhtt! They are tighter than a panty-less lady on a ice cube chair!

Locally we have DoctorfunK which "was established in 1995 and has set the standard for new soul music in the Pacific Northwest. Echoing the legendary passion of famed horn band Tower of Power and that  "Bay Area Sound," this 10-piece ensemble has maintained the tradition and more."

Think I’m kidding? Check out "Can’t Fight the Funk" sound clip here. My friend Scott Dart wasn’t on this recording but does the bari sax honors for DoctorfunK now. He’s the third in from the right side of this picture.
