Just when you thought it was safe to listen to music, Big Fun 3 has come out with some new jams entitled "Funked". The jazz/funk improv trio is back in action. The tunes being as provocative as the sexy cover. Sultry, exotic, and funky as hell. Dance to the grooves. Once again Bruce Cohen on the Hammond organ ( and for the first time electric piano ) is joined by his compadres Peter Lucas on guitar and Tony Foster on drums and percussion. For these sessions special guest Michael Fraser has been added in the mix on acoustic and electric bass making Big Fun 3 even more funktified and adventurous than ever. The six tracks begin with the short ambient theme "Intro) Ra" and ends with the epic twenty-one minute tribute to Miles, "Tell You Later". In between is the scrapes and grooves of the solid funk of "Zootie", the soulful jam of "Malcolm Mooney", the percussion driven "Less Said", and the slow sonic "Bottled Spider"; fans of the Bard will know where they got that title. So take a listen to the new Big Fun 3 because getting "Funked" has never felt or sounded so good.
