Former James Brown MD Pee Wee Ellis wrote 'The Chicken'. Legendary Weather Report bassist Jaco Pastorius turned it into a Funk classic. This release is nodding towards this history & picking up the baton - combining hard hitting rhythms with Big Band horns. A wall-to-wall, joyful and unalloyed piece of funk by Redtenbacher's Funkestra best known for their bass driven Funk adventures. RSB Records will run concerts & digital marketing campaigns until the release of the album 'Big FUNK Band'.
