IVAN "FUNKBOY" BODLEY

PIGS FEET & POTTED MEAT

2009-11-24

When it comes to Bass players that know how to funk it up, it is easy to name Stanley Clarke and Victor Wooten, on this disc Ivan “Funkboy” Bodley demonstrates he is very capable of laying down one of 2009’s funkiest discs. Ivan is no stranger to either funk or jazz as he has been the musical director for the likes of Sam Moore, Martha Reeves & the Shirelles and has preformed with The Temptations, Solomon Burke, Ben E. King and Bo Diddley. His Bass playing most resembles the late 1970’s and early 80’s Stanley Clarke on discs like “I Wanna Play For You”. Ivan describes this disc as feel-good funky music that is unapologetically buoyant and fun, I can’t agree more. I suggest picking up a jar of “Pigs Feet & Potted Meat” at your local record store.
