The Wolf & Mister Funk

Posted by shanoah on June 30, 2009

Well, there were a lot of directions I could have gone from my last post.

I could have kept going with Wesley Willis. (And I probably should mention that when I call him schitzophrenic, he has actually been diagnosed with schitzophrenia. He doesn’t just act that way.) But I decided I’d rather stay with the funk.

So, here is a cover of Al Foster‘s Night of the Wolf, being done by a group called Esperanto. As I think artificial languages are cool, and I love whatever instrument their using in this (a thermin, maybe?), I’m all for this one. And, frankly, I could listen to this all day. Looks like it was on the same album as the Hippy Skippy Moon Strut, which isn’t too suprising.
