Feeling Good (Funk, Soul & Deep Jazz Gems: The Supreme Sound Of Producer Bob Shad)


It's really spiritual, fun and funky and sometimes a little crazy, which perfectly captures Bobby Shad. Enjoy.' Judd Apatow WEWANTSOUNDS is back with FEELING GOOD, a compilation of rare Spiritual Jazz and Funk grooves culled from legendary Producer BOB SHAD's Mainstream Records. Alice Clark's cult classic 'Never Did I Stop Loving You' features here alongside many gems uncovered for the first time. Working with titans such as Charlie Parker and Lightnin' Hopkins in the 40s, founding the EmArcy jazz label in the 50s and discovering Janis Joplin in the 60s, Bob Shad has had an incredible influence. TDrenched in modal Fender Rhodes keys, spiritual sax and flute solos, deep percussions and funky beats, these albums have slowly been rediscovered by a new generation of DJs, hip hop producers and vinyl junkies. Afrique's classic 'House of the Rising Funk' and its funky wah wah frenzy to Hadley Caliman's deep jazz Flute ode; From one of Clark Terry's famous Mumbles (Shad produced the original with Oscar Peterson) to Jack Wilkins' 'Red Clay' sampled by both A Tribe Called Quest and Chance the Rapper. A Soul Music lover, Shad also excelled in soul divas and produced Ellerine Harding, Maxine Weldon and of course the mighty Alice Clark. Carmen McRae, one of Shad's long time collaborators, gives a soulful, conga-led version of the classic Feelin' Good a song made famous by Nina Simone.
