Good God...hit me!!  Never heard that JB one. He was da man.

I also watched Colbert yesterday. I wasn't sure what I was watching when he introduced Fela. Thought it might be some touring African troupe but then they got funkified.  :bananaw00t:

Another classic - Fire - Ohio Players.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saVT0ZbyIHQ&feature=related

I've noticed a lot of these earlier songs have essentially the same tempo (BPM). Here's one that's a little faster with a great bass track.
Patrice Rushen  - Forget Me Nots

Pretty solid recreation of the dance-funk bass line from Justice D.A.N.C.E:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blEfBbsCWCE

Here's the original (which i'm supposing is hand crafted from cut up samples rather than played live, but it's pretty damn sweet, and really exemplifies how important the spaces between the notes are)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bjWPyDMk8k8


I learned of this tune only a week or two ago via Jehar's TastyCast.  I immediately bought it on amazon, and most every time i've listened to it so far I end up having one of those, "aw--goddamn i wish i'd written that bass line" feelings.
