This is a different kind of funk, a slight deviation from the usual Funk It Out Fridays around here.  It’s still funky, just a mellow version.  Brought to you by Snarky Puppy from their latest release, Family Dinner, Volume 1, “Deep” (which was originally featured on N’Dambi’s Tunin’ Up & Cosignin’) was reworked as a live experience, encapsulating the original jazziness but extra rich in bass and percussion.  Check it out below and pick up that new Family Dinner, Volume 1 as well.  With features from Lalah Hathaway, Chantae Cann,  Shayna Steele, the aforementioned N’Dambi and other talented vocalists, this album proves to be a must-have.

Music has certain healing qualities that aren’t obtained from dark, amber bottles or gelatin covered tablets.  It has the ability to awaken senses and stir up joy in one’s life.  There are songs with the full intent and purpose to generate smiles and elicit happiness within.  This new joint from Atlanta’s Chantae Cann is happiness personified.  “Da Da ‘N Da” makes you feel like dancing wherever you stand, singing to your lover, smiling at scowling faces and hugging yourself.  With musical arrangements by the funky jazz band Snarky Puppy, grooving is inevitable.  So, groove on and be happy!  Be sure to cop her upcoming album, Journey to Golden, on 7/21.
