A free Byard Lancaster download

A little funk alert for that azz: I can point you to a FREE MP3 featuring Philly reed man Byard Lancaster, who since the 1960s has worked with the likes of Sun Ra, McCoy Tyner and Sonny Sharrock.

Click here to stream “It’s Okay to Love” on my Vox blog. Lancaster blew all over this track by fONKSQUISh, a project led by Chuck Fishman, a guy I remember from the online funk-fan community back in the ’90s.

To download the cut, follow this link to last.fm.

OK, here's a good one, local band, they play regular gig at the Muckleshoot Casino south of Seattle no cover (lissen long as you want for free in the lounge if you don't mind the lung cancer exposure - Native American reservations are exempt from abusive state fascism). Good sax and awesome black guitarist solo starts at 1:50...
