From the instant funk classic “Chameleon” to the rare-groove sound of “God Make Me Funky,” the Headhunters have redefined modern funk, world music, and jazz as one of the most innovative groups in history. Following the release of the groundbreaking Head Hunters (1973) the first album to garner gold status in jazz history, the band toured and recorded for several years with legendary pianist Herbie Hancock, releasing the masterpieces Thrust (1974), Flood (1975), and Manchild (1975). In 1976 the Headhunters ventured out on their own recording the classic Survival Of The Fittest (1976), followed by Straight to the Gate (1978), and Return of the Headhunters (1998). In 2003, the Headhunters maintain the same vitality and creativity on their newest Basin Street Records release Evolution Revolution. The album showcases the incredible musical synergy which brought them world fame in the 70s. The Headhunters newest Basin Street Records release Evolution Revolution, available Spring 2003, will smash all known musical conventions and change the way music is heard and played again.
