Tuesday Party Tune!

One of the things that they don't tell you when you take up playing the bass is that you are going to develop a whole new appreciation for funk.  Because like the guitarist is the hero in heavy metal, and the technician running the auto-tuner is the hero in modern pop music, the bassist is the hero in funk.

There's lots to love in this song (the horns are pretty fantastic), but in order to appreciate it fully, I'd suggest wearing headphones unless your computer's speakers have good bass response.  Get a load of Fred Thomas laying down the law the whole way through.

Hey, chapters 1-3 are up over on this year's novel-blog.  Get on over there and read 'em.
