musicology #245

soul&boogie #6

(Faze O – Ridin’ High)

Cats…apologies for not completing the ‘soul&boogie’. Been ‘grafting’ since EARLY Saturday Morning and have only just made the time and space to hook up to themusicologist. Decided to continue the theme for this week so it’s straight into this one from Chicago boogie quintet Faze – O who scored with this 1978 cut on the She label. Keyboardist Keith “Chop Chop” Harrison, guitarist Ralph “Love” Aikens, bassist Tyrone “Flye” Crum, drummer Roger “Dodger” Parker, and percussionist Robert “Bip” Neal, Jr combine to deliver a glimpse into the future of funk/soul/boogie at the dawning of a new day.
