Jammin' Old School

Funk

Funk became established in the early 70s and was without doubt the 'tour de force' of R&B at that time. The music had a simple, raw, almost jerky feel which belies the fact that funk is actually a complex style. Funk had elaborate structures with the accent on the downbeat of the usual 4/4 tempo. Emphasis was taken away from melody and harmony making the rhythm the most important element. Funk reached it's peak in the mid 70s and from then on became a slicker more soul orientated variant but funky rhythms remained an integral part of R&B.
