Brilliant Jazz Funk groove recorded by Soul Media, in fact, the japanese saxophonist Jiro Inagaki & His Soul Media featuring Hiromasa Suzuki, Takashi Imai & Akira Okazawa. Funky Stuff is a common work between Jiro & Colgen Suzuki including straight ahead jazz close to CTI recordings, in the same vein as The Crusaders with only Suzuki's compositions, except Funky Stuff by Kool & The Gang from their successful 'Wild And Peaceful' LP (1974) & Scratch by trumpeter Wayne Henderson. All tracks arranged by Hiromasa Suzuki.
