Monk Higgins - Little Mama (1972)
An excellent batch of soulful and funky instrumental tracks — super-dope 70s work from funky arranger Monk Higgins! The album grooves in the best blacksploitation soundtrack mode — as Monk plays tenor sax and organ in the set, over slinky stepping arrangements that feature Paul Humphrey on drums, and Freddy Robinson on guitars — all coming together with Monk in a sweet LA style of early 70s funk! The groove is funky, yet laidback at the same time — and with some soulful backing vocals behind the instrumentation on a number of cuts — really the perfect sort of approach for a hip crime or action soundtrack.
