Funk Assessment #427: Maceo Parker

It's been a while, but let us consider what makes this funky. It's difficult, and possibly unfair, to highlight any particular instrument or player: They are all getting down with their bad selves somewhat extensively. However, the arrangement is generally speaking massively syncopated, the drummer adds a dimension of funkyness by playing sixteenths and the staccato horns hit the spot with effortless precision.
