Defunkt

Led by trombonist Joseph Bowie -- the son of a St. Louis-based music teacher, the brother of big band arranger Byron Bowie, and late trumpet player of the Art Ensemble of Chicago's Lester Bowie -- Defunkt created some of the most adventurous sounds of the last quarter of the 20th century. Formed in 1978, Defunkt initially took a danceable approach to jazz. Although their first three albums -- Defunkt, Razor's Edge, and Thermonuclear Sweat -- made them leaders of New York's radical underground music scene, their inability to achieve commercial expectations led them to disband in 1983, with Bowie retreating to the island of St. Croix. Reorganized after Bowie's return to New York in 1986, Defunkt recorded an additional six albums, including A Blues Tribute: Jimi Hendrix & Muddy Waters and In America, between 1988-1993. Beginning in 1996, Bowie sought a way to combine the big band jazz of the 1930s and '40s and the dance rhythms and grooves of the '70s, '80s, and '90s. Expanding Defunkt with the addition of more horn players and background vocalists, Bowie introduced the Defunkt Big Band with a six-week stint at the Knitting Factory in New York. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Kim Clarke is a beast!
Horrible? Try the baddest of the bad! The heaviest funk in New York City in the late 70's and early 80's. We used to go out and see them ALL THE TIME in the clubs. NOBODY got you to dance as HARD to Jazz-Funk as the MASTERS of the genre 'DEFUNKT'!!! Awesome guitarists (Vernon Reid played with them), one of the funkiest bass players EVER (Kim Clarke a WOMAN!) and I've seen ALL the major Funk bands in America. This was flat out my favorite FUNK band growing up and I STILL LOVE THEM! Yeaaaah!
Joseph Bowie - the leader - plays trombone.

His Brother Lester played trumpet and was a founding member of The Art Ensemble of Chicago.
These guys are horrrrible!
