Great Band, Great Album

In general, despite similarities in style and groove, there's usually a clear line between pop funk and jazz fusion. It's easy to discern Kool & the Gang from Billy Cobham, or The Ohio Players from Weather Report, for example.

The Headhunters are a rare exception. Fans of jazz-fueled instrumental funk and mainstream sing-along funk will both find something to enjoy in "Straight from the Gate." Anyone new to the genre should probably check out "Survival of the Fittest," or Herbie Hancock's "Head Hunters" before giving this one a listen. But either way, this album will not disappoint you.
