Gather Up All Your Friends

I can't say that I'm a big Hubert Laws fan (at least as a band leader), however many of his CTI releases included some solid breaks. With that being said, here is probably my favorite track by the jazz flutist in "Family". This funky track, which has more of a boogie vide than anything even closely related to jazz, was the title track to his 1980 album Family, which came out on Columbia Records. Laws keeps it simple here, blending together some feel-good female vocals with a solid funk groove. and there's nothing wrong with that. Enjoy!
