Andrew D. Gordon, world renowned music educator, author of over 60 music educational products, has previously written numerous books on funk keyboard styles such as: “60 Of The Funkiest Keyboard Riffs Known To Mankind”, “Funky Organ Grooves”, “Outta Sight Funk & R&B Riffs For Piano/Keyboards” which have been well received by students, teachers and musicians all over the world.
As playing funk styles is a passion of Andrew’s, he has written this instructional book “100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves” based on the influences of the great Funk, Soul and R&B artists such as: James Brown, Herbie Hancock, The Crusaders, Average White Band, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Ramsey Lewis, Booker T and The MG’s, MFSB, Billy Preston etc. Besides the afore-mentioned styles Andrew has also added a few grooves that are Afro-Caribbean such as: Latin, Reggae and Calypso.
Each of the 100 grooves have been recorded with the keyboard part playing along with a rhythm section of guitar, bass, drums, organ and in many of the grooves, percussion. There is also a three minute Play-A-Long track for each of the 100 grooves minus the keyboard part so that you can practice along with the rhythm tracks adding up to over 5 hours of Play-A-Long tracks.
