Awwwwwww! Don't sing! God may have made you funky, but he clearly took it away. This is a cryin' ass shame. Please don't think this is all there is to the Headhunters. Delete this garbage and go back to the o.g. stuff.

The Hunters Caught Nothing Here!!!

isaacmusicman

This release falls victim to the one thing that plagues most classic artist when trying to recapture something they once had, they wait way to long to do it. The "Hunters" caught nothing here, in fact, in a lot of ways they fell into the darkside of Jazz I call Smooth Jazz. Even on tunes that attempt to be funky fall flat and are very annoying. Like I said, nothing to catch here.

They Say All Music Guide

Only two members, percussionist Bill Summers and bassist Paul Jackson, remain from the band that backed Herbie Hancock on his 1973 Head Hunters album, which simultaneously breathed life into the flabby and already moribund jazz fusion genre and demonstrated that jazz recordings could actually make money. But the band’s attitude of joyful eclecticism and funky exuberance that animated the first project is still there (even if Hancock isn’t), and it is abundantly apparent on Evolution Revolution. That’s not to say that every track is essential; on the contrary, Jackson’s vocals on “God Made Me Funky” are rather lame, “Everything” is nothing special, and the one-chord blues of “Fonkyfried” manages somehow to be simultaneously abrasive and boring. But almost every other track is a rich, fragrant stew of percolating beats and variegated musical elements, from the harmonic complexity of the horn charts on “Loft Funk” to the gorgeous African polyphony on the chorus of “Yekola” and the bouncing, layered rhythms of “Nutcracker.” As with so many releases on the Basin Street label, there is an overall feeling of warmth and joy to this album that keeps you hooked even through its less than essential moments. Recommended. – Rick Anderson
