Medium Rare (72 minutes)
This is BendingCorners' take on the well worn path of "rare groove". The set starts with the traditional "rare" sound and moves thru more contemporary and progressive grooves and ends somewhat abstract.

I recall reading some where that you are not a big fan of vocals. However Les McCann TORE IT UP with his far, far left and socially conscious, soul-food-of-the-mind type, ham hock and greens with hog maus and corn bread style vocals. In my family, he is a HERO.

Great selection!

Yes, this is a groovin', funky playlist. Thanks! I found your site by searching for Garage A Trois' Mystery Funk. It is only available on vinyl (I no longer own a record player!) and I've been searching for peices from this album. Thanks for including Bwami in this show! Maybe the other tracks from this album will eventually find their way into your podcast?

And you turned me on to Stanley Turrentine and Jimmt McGriff, further expanding my musical horizons. Thank you!

Head-nodding listening already. We anticipate that MMW will up the raunch. (They do). Then the next three tracks. Knock me out. Stupendous, sublime funk. Can hardly keep my mind on my work. Thanks so much!
