Electric Funk is an album by American jazz organist Jimmy McGriff featuring performances recorded in 1969 and released on the Blue Note label.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated "It's not jazz, it's jazzy soul, and it's among the funkiest of any soul-jazz records from the late '60s, filled with stuttering drum breaks, lite fuzz guitars, elastic bass, smoldering organ, and punchy, slightly incongruous horn charts".[2]
