Eddie Fisher: Brain Strain [1977]

from the classic Hot Lunch, on the Stang label

Eddie plays all the instruments on this, so it's safe to say that God Made Eddie Funky. One of the things I love, along with the great clavinet part, is the snare drum syncopation near the end. The snare hits come one 16th note after the 2 and the 4. It reminds me of Al Foster's work on Agharta and Pangaea.

See here for a bio of Eddie and here for Eddie's work on CD.

(Apologies for the image. Like Eddie, there are many things that I'd like to do, such as get my digital photography chops together so I could produce a better shot of this remarkable album cover.)
