BIG FUN(K) – A Groove/Jazz/Soul Journey

Don Braden and Karl Latham’s Big Fun(k) explores new territories in jazz and funk with hard-hitting grooves, clever riffs and sophisticated harmonies. The band’s repertoire consists of classic songs by Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Earth Wind & Fire,Beyoncé, and others, as well as rich, grooving original compositions. The core group — Don Braden on tenor sax and flute, Karl Latham on drums, Nick Rolfe on keyboards and Gary Foote on bass — has “big fun” exploring this music with wit, energetic interaction, and soulfulness. The CD “Big Fun(k) Live” is available now, and a new CD is in the works, slated for release in Fall/Winter 2016/2017.
