AMERICANA FUNK -- a very cool mix of classic Rock, Blues, R&B and Country licks and riffs wrapped up in contemporary Soul Jazz. A very unique blend of new yet “familiar” music from the heart of America. This CD is the Western version of this genre.
NOTES
What great music! For those unaware of the works of Poppa Steve Mutimer, you don't know what you’re missing. His albums contain so many elements one doesn't know where to start. Listening to it is a musical journey in itself and varies each time you listen, as there is always something new to discover. A hidden note here, a change of tempo there a bit more fusion there and the musicianship simply and easily increases each time. His albums have traits of Chill, Funk, Jazz, Latin and even a bit of New Country. What a mix of great music and what a great talent lies behind the compositions.

Cool Music

I call my music "Americana Funk", a retro salute to the early days when music was created here and not imported from Europe. This music has evolved into what we know today as Rock & Roll, R&B, Country, Jazz, Soul, Folk and Blues. I go back to those beginnings for solos and riffs and wrap it all up in contemporary Jazz for cool modern sounds with a touch of nostalgia to them. I draw on my experience as a drummer and bandleader (1958 - 1972), producer (1970 - 2000), and digital music composer and music arranger (2005 - present). I put everything I know and love into this music and sincerely hope you enjoy the groove. Poppa Steve
