SONG OF THE DAY Ike Turner &The Kings Of Rhythm – Thinking Black

Such a funky, groove-laden and rhythmically rich brassy delight from Ike Turner’s  1969, A Black Man’s Soul albumReleased on the Dallas, TX R&B label, Pompeii Records, Thinking Black was the only single to be released from the LP and is one of twelve instrumental beauties to feature on the record. 

The album itself exposed a side to Turner’s music which proved not as popular with his audiences at the time, but for me this funky collection offers an insight into a more traditional funk sound and the beauty lies within its raw simplicity.

The album was recorded during Turner’s free time while he was touring with then wife Tina Turner as part of the Ike & Tina Turner Revue, with each track being recorded at numerous studios in the U.S. between tour dates…….Thinking Black revolves around a super cool horn section and a lighthearted loose rhythm, it’s a great listen!…Check it out above.
