Larry Graham & Graham Central Station feat. Appearances by Marco Prince & Jeanne Added
The Graham Central Station was and remains one of the top 70s funk bands and its founder, Larry Graham, is an electric bass icon. He owes his reputation to his long collaboration with Sly & the Family Stone, the legendary Graham Central Station and his work with the Prince of Minneapolis from the late 90s onwards. The Californian funkateer’s last visit to France and Vienne was in 2011 when he met up with Bootsy Collins. Bootsy and Larry Graham played a huge part in defining the values of electric, organic and psychedelic funk. Graham started out young playing with John Lee Hooker and Jimmy Reed. Sly Stone brought him on board in 1968 and his turbulent creative experience was a milestone for him. He joined Prince’s New Power Generation in the 90s and was behind Mr Slap’s big comeback (GCS 2000, NPG Records, 1999). Expect funk with a twist for his 2017 performance with Marco Prince (from 80s group FFF) and the singer Jeanne Added.
