Going on my view that funk is jazz without the swing, it would seem that this is the appropriate spot to discuss funk. That said, what is some recommended listening for funk?

A good chunk of Bucketheads stuff is funk. Especialy from his Praxis days. You should check out Transmutation by Praxis which was Bill Laswells idea which has Buckethead on guitar, Bootsy Collins on bass/vocals, also from Funkadelic Bernie Worrell on keyboard/organ, and finaly Brain from Primus on drums.

Here's a video of them for reference: http://youtube.com/watch?v=KUL_gcHv0EA

I'd love to hear Flea do a straight-up funk album. That'd be ace.

There's an album a friend of mine played for me, it had Flea on it. It was more of an acid jazz kinda album than funk though.

Sorry, idk the name of it though

I hope that we could get some real metal out there. I guess A7X a start...
But nu metal does have its moments like Slipknot Mushroomhead and Korn.

Any of that stuff more akin to Herbie's 'Headhunters' and 'Thrust'? I'm not too interested in anything really pop-esq (e.g. Dance to the Music - Sly, though some of his other stuff is great), and I'm trying to sort out the good funk from the radio friendly crud.

Parliament/Funkadelic, for some sweet guitarwork check out their song, "maggot brain"
TEEP!!! Oiiiiiiieeeeeeeyyy!!!!!!

Damn right - that whole album is great.
And whats the deal with Sly Stone? I've seen his performance at woodstock, and how the hell did he turn from the happy pop meister of 'Dance to the music' fame into that?
