Donald Seward

Some great instrumental soul/funk jams are served up by French Canadian Donald Seward and his backing band on their debut offering Studio “B” Funk EP, released on Les Disques Pluton in 2010. Drenched in roots they got the sound down pat with a great rythm section, nice action on the hammond and horn section – with some occasional jazz flute too boot!

Three songs in total (four if you download) of great classic funk served up with fitting 70’s style production. If you’re into classic 70’s TV themes a’la Streets of San Fransisco or cult blaxploitation like Shaft make sure you check this out! Bio is in French I’m afraid so I couldn’t really make much out of it.
