Brothers Johnson – Ain't We Funkin' Now (A&M)

Belonging to the sad list of those we recently lost, Louis Johnson who left behind him an incomparable legacy in the history of Disco/Funk music. Remembered as one of the best players of all time, among the ones who, along with Larry Graham, have introduced the slapping technique which would revolutionize Funk but also Jazz Fusion like Marcus Miller did on his own, he got his signature sound from the StingRay, an electric bass guitar introduced by Music Man which Leo Fender especially designed for him back in 1976 to first use and promote.
One of the most brilliant illustration of his art being given on this Quincy Jones produced jam taken from the Brothers Johnson‘s ‘Blam!’ album released back in 1978.
Louis sadly died of a liver failure on May 21, 2015 at the age of 60.
