Kool & the Gang
- Kool: the nickname of singer, songwriter, bass-master, and funky patriarch Robert “Kool” Bell
- The Gang: his horn-swiveling soul syndicate that funked up the charts in the ’70s, brought R&B to the masses in the ’80s, sold 70 million albums, and still has tailfeathers shaking in the 21st century
- Their hits: The ’70s canon is loaded with funky stuff such as “Funky Stuff” and the Pulp Fiction favorite, “Jungle Boogie,” whereas the ’80s oeuvre featured jams such as “Celebration” and baby-makers such as “Joanna.”
- Their aliases: Jazziacs, the band’s original moniker upon forming in 1964 and Kool & the Flames, which lasted until 1969
Acts that have sampled their grooves: DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince (it wouldn’t be “Summertime” without Kool’s “Summer Madness), Snoop Dogg, Kris Kross, Mase, Too Short, and N.W.A.
Bootsy Collins: Sent from Planet Funk to save Earth from stagnant hips, the legendary bassist of James Brown and Parliament-Funkadelic invented the grooves heard in Brown’s “Super Bad” and Parliament’s “Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker).” Armed with his star-shaped “space bass,” he also performs otherworldly numbers of his own such as “Stretchin’ Out.”
- Doug E. Fresh: Pioneer of beatboxing who filled his resume by originating the club chant “Heyyyyyyy, YO!…I-iiiiight” in the hit “I-ight” and becoming proficient in Excel.
