3145. Miles Davis - Aïda
From: The Man With The Horn; Year: 1981; Genre: Jazz Fusion/Funk
If my numbers are correct, today marks my 130th consecutive Funky Friday; 130 weeks straight of picking something funk or funk related to mark the end of the workweeks.
Anyway, the funky latinesque groove is what really catches my attention every time I hear it; Marcus Miller's bass in particular. With this tight and complex rhythm it gives an excellent platform for Miles Davis to work his magic he's so known for.

Hear Aïda on YouTube.
