The ancient African tribal rhythms and musical traditions survived the shock of the transportation of milllions of Africans as slaves to the Americas, and after years of slavery in the so called Land of the Free the sounds of Old Africa became the new sounds of black America. Rapping, the rhythmic use of spoken or semi-sung lyrics grew from its roots in the tribal chants and the plantation work songs to become, an integral part of black resistance to an oppresive white society. This ad-lib vocal style progressed throught the scat-singing of the early jazz days via pioneers like Cab Calloway and Slim Gaillard to the street poetry of the Last Poets in the Seventies. Through the ever-present influence of gospel, Fifties rhythm and blues and various technical innovations like the electric guitar and electric organ, black music arrived at soul in the early Sixties. By the end of that decade, with the help of James Brown, Sly Stone and others too numerous to mention, it had mutated into that glorious hybrid, street funk, which is where we come in. Throughout the golden years of street funk in the early and mid Seventies, bands like the JBs, Brass Construction, The Fatback Band, The Jimmy Castor Bunch, Parliament and thousands of others blasted out a sound that meant sex, sweat and shuffling feet.
