George Benson serves up an eclectic stew of musical styles, a fantastic blend of psychedelica, jazz and latin stuff. The album begins with a rousing version of Jefferson Airplane’s hippie anthem, “White Rabbit.” Another highlight is an energetic rendering of Brazilian classical composer Heitor Villa-Lobos’ “Little Train”. But maybe the best songs on the album are saved until last. Here George Benson turns in a blistering over seven minutes rendition of the Mamas & Papas’ “California Dreaming” which is for sure a killer version. Finally this brilliant album ends with “El Mar”, a Benson-composed, Spanish-tinged epic that features a blossoming 17 years young Earl Klugh on acoustic guitar.
“A Funky Thide of Sings” is all about the funk! Space rock drumming to be precise. The album opener “Panhandler” begins with an eerie type of ambience that reminds of hiding under a rock until this unexplainable ominous danger above clears. This song keeps a tight melody flowing and even when an extraordinary jazzy guitar solo comes in, the song remains high-octane and awesome. Keith Jarrett’s “Sorcery” displays the Cobham funk sound at its best. “Moody Modes” lives up to its name! ‘A Funky Thide Of Sings’ is an album with Cobham’s thunderous drumrolls and triple kick bass drums, with his signature sound. To hear them is to realize you’ll always recognize, and appreciate what a great drummer sounds like.
