That bass is so slinky and funky with the pop coming behind the beat—it’s like the line on Cheryl Lynn's Forget Me Nots; the bass player understands that Funk is about timing not getting a million popcorn hits in. It's like Bernard Edwards, Gary Grainger, and Louis Johnson with a Marcus Miller tone. The vocal phrasing doubling reminds me of Prince and the lyrics and performance are great. The lyrics are great. Love the keyboards—sounds and laid back tasteful playing. The guitar solo evokes bands like Funkadelic, Slave, and the Isleys when there was a smoking soloist as part of an R&B band. The drummer is keeping it super tight with nice splash hits on the ONE.
This is excellent R&B!!
