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


The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and said, "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 [sic] fuzz guitars, elastic bass, smoldering organ, and punchy, slightly incongruous horn charts."[2]
