Are Tower of Power Jazz funk, or Soul Funk?
I would vote door #1, but does it really matter?
They're a tight "horn band" blessed with having the great Rocco Prestia on bass who keeps them in the pocket no matter whether they play Jazz-Funk or Soul-Funk or Country-Western Funk!
40+ years of their groove; gotta hand it to 'em. Hall of Fame or else!!!
Hell no! I matters not, they still groove like mofo's! haha. Its just I'm writing a dissertation talking about the sub-genres of Funk music and analysing bassists of the specific sub-genres. Just wanted to get some opinions on where TOP fall into Had to choose Rocco haha!
They defy classification as they are capable of whatever fonk they are called on to pull off. If there was a criteria like ability to play off charts as jazz funk and improve as soul funk, again it would be a real tough call. Maybe cite them as a prime example of both?
Soul with a capital S.
