The ultimate in positive, post-Fat Albert jazz, Funky Gene is eager to please. The playing of Harris is clear and confident and he has amazing volume control from note to note. Thematically, he's also not afraid to take songs, and segments within songs, in new directions. There's great thematic variety yet consistency of technique and skill with everything Harris plays. His three bandmates are very faithful and let him have most of the limelight, but it does mean they lack a bit in personality, and Harris doesn't take many rests. The album as a whole is like that fun co-worker who loves what he does. Funky Gene's is a step above.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
