You can’t get any funkier than this... just dripping with funky barbecue sauce. Reminiscent of the late 70s fusion-funk instrumentals from artists like Herbie Hancock, Tower of Power or Rick James. A perfect track for a musical good time feeling that just says... funky! Don’t hurt yourself. Instrumental, RnB, Funk
A smooth and sultry R&B instrumental with a skillful tenor sax that's soulful, jazzy & sensual. A perfect fit for a love scene, romantic evening or a commercial for smooth & silky lingerie or satin sheets. 12/8 love ballad time signature. Lush sentimental loving & gentle kisses. Instrumental, RnB, Smooth Soul
This smooth-jazz-style tune takes you on a musical walk through a soulful experience. A feel-good song that reminds you of all the good things music can bring. A walk with your soul-mate through a park or down a busy street where the two of you are all that matters. A romantic-musical ‘soul walk.', Instrumental, RnB, Groove
A high-quality sound-alike of the famous groove from “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone” by the Temptations. A great track or underscore for that “psychedelic soul” sound from the early 70’s. A repeating bass line with that nostalgic wah-wah Strat guitar lick. Also, a nice parody piece for the same era. Instrumental, RnB, 1970's Vintage RnB
