3494. Return to Forever - Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant (Parts 1+2)
From: Romantic Warrior; Year: 1976; Genre: Jazz Fusion/Progressive Rock
This track, which is like a mashup of jazz, rock, funk, and classical was perfect for my mood today on this Funky Friday. Whilst it's less full-on funk and more like a very jazzy Rush instrumental; this one's just too funky to not pick it. That ever changing funky rhythm that Stanley Clarke and Lenny White lay down is just too infectious. For that matter the entire band show off their chops in this 12 minute epic instrumental fight song.

Hear Duel of the Jester and the Tyrant (Parts 1+2) on YouTube.
