    Tower of Power for lots of 16th note grooves! Definately Sly and The Family Stone and anything that Larry Graham has played in.

    Maceo Parker's "Life On PLanet Groove" just does it for me. He's also probably the best concert I've ever been to. EVERYBODY in that place was grooving!

    Get some Papa Grows Funk - all sick musicians....Russell Batiste Jr. on drums, Peter V. or Marc Pero on bass (highly underrated monsters), Jon Gros on keys, a guy that used to be in Galactic and June Yamagishi on guitar.
    I have a live show of them doing one of the funkiest Yellow Moon's I've ever heard.
