Internationally acclaimed guitarist and composer Oz Noy follows his provocative two-volume exploration and reinvention of his blues roots (Twisted Blues) with 'Who Gives a Funk' - a examination of classic funk and R&B grooves, spiked with his uniquely unhinged improvisational instincts. Special guests include Dweezil Zappa, Robben Ford, Randy Brecker, Fred Wesley, Joe Bonamassa, Corey Glover and more.

"Simple, funky music - but soulful", is how Noy describes it, while acknowledging that simple is not synonymous with easy. The discipline and clarity these classic structures demand put even the finest musicians to the test, and Noy and his all-star cohorts deliver a remarkable program that uncovers intriguing new pathways through timeless forms.

Inspired by the funk-blues nexus of the late '60s and early '70s music of artists like Freddie King, James Brown, Albert Collins, 'Who Gives a Funk' mixes concise, compelling original compositions with reinterpretations of vintage standards by Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Sam Cook, Charles Mingus, and even Thelonious Monk - mostly tracked live in the studio for maximum grit and spark.

A core group of New York's finest is augmented by an impressive array of guest appearances, including performances by John Medeski, Dweezil Zappa, funk pioneer Fred Wesley, Chris Potter, Robben Ford, Randy Brecker, Joe Bonamasa, members of Stevie Ray Vaughn's Double Trouble, and Living Color vocalist Corey Glover. Through it all, Noy's guitar is the connecting thread. Noy brilliantly walks a musical tightrope spanning the best of the past and the future.
