Listen/Download – Funky16Corners Kick In the Brass MP3

Greetings all!

This brand new mix has been percolating for a while, and the lockdown/quarantine thing pushed me to post it, so that you might have some groovy sounds to enjoy while hunkered.

This is just about an hour of 1960s, brass-heavy soul and funk, with some Hammond goodness mixed in for flavor.

So dig it, pass it along, and stay healthy!

Also, make sure to follow Funky16Corners on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Keep the faith
