Egon’s Funk Archaeology at NPR: Summer School Funk (A Kashmere Stage Band Addendum)

Now-Again | Sep. 30, 2011 | Picks |

The latest post in Egon’s NPR series Funk Archaeology couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for anyone recently introduced to the wonders of the Kashmere Stage Band. This investigation into Houston jazz drummer, educator and label owner Bubbha Thomas’ Summer Jazz Workshop – and the nearly impossible to source 45s released by the high school students that participated in the program in the early 70s – colors the Kashmere Stage Band experience and helps explain just how this one Texas city managed to release so much damn-good adolescent funk music.

    Thanks for the great info and npr story. Love the tunes. I’d like to get all the songs by this group you have. How can we buy and download them?

    None have been officially reissued yet – but that’s not to say we won’t do something in the future…
