100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves for Organ downloadable MIDI files
Andrew D. Gordon, world renowned music educator, author of over 60 music educational products, has previously written numerous books on funk keyboard styles such as: “60 Of The Funkiest Keyboard Riffs Known To Mankind”, “Funky Organ Grooves”, “Outta Sight Funk & R&B Riffs For Piano/Keyboards” which have been well received by students, teachers and musicians all over the world. As playing funk styles is a passion of Andrew’s, he has written this instructional book “100 Ultimate Soul, Funk and R&B Grooves” based on the influences of the great Funk, Soul and R&B artists such as: James Brown, Herbie Hancock, The Crusaders, Average White Band, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder, Parliament, Ramsey Lewis, Booker T and The MG’s, MFSB, Billy Preston etc. Besides the afore-mentioned styles Andrew has also added a few grooves that are Afro-Caribbean such as: Latin, Reggae and Calypso. Each of the 100 grooves have been recorded with the keyboard part playing along with a rhythm section of guitar, bass, drums, organ and in many of the grooves, percussion. There is also a three minute Play-A-Long track for each of the 100 grooves minus the keyboard part so that you can practice along with the rhythm tracks adding up to over 5 hours of Play-A-Long tracks.

A Spotify playlist containing the songs that have influenced the grooves can be listened to. https://open.spotify.com/user/adgpro/playlist/7qb2ijcpIvl1D9AULTU5Ei Keyboardist extraordinaire Mike Garson comments about the book: "Andrew has a great flair for a large variety of grooves. These exercises if practiced can really help ones musicianship and feel and I wish I had them when I grew up. To be able to read them and hear them played is extremely valuable".
