Dave "Baby" Cortez - (Do It) The Funky Dance
Found this digging around and bought it expecting a tune similar to "Baby's" other body of work, "The Happy Organ Song" and "Rinky Dink," which were both pretty big hits when they dropped. This track is a whole different ball game compared to his earlier tunes, it possesses a deeeeeeep groove and funky rhythm that is very different from the other tunes. Dave is known mostly for his organ abilities and this song is no different in that regard but that's where the similarities end. The song is so laid back and so chill, I can't help but picture some Cholo dudes rolling through chicago in a '65 Impala. Enjoy the song and nice weather (if you're in NY).
