SFJAZZ Hotplate is TONIGHT! This evening Chloe Jane Scott is paying tribute to jazz flute great Hubert Laws. With that being said, I though it would be appropriate to highlight one of my favorite tracks by the jazz flutist in "Family". This funky track, which has more of a boogie vibe 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 some feel-good female vocals with a solid funk groove. A perfect recipe that works together nicely on this amazing soul-jazz boogie gem. Enjoy!
