german version
Mit "Funk Don't Move“ kommt nun das bereits dritte Soloalbum des erfolgreichen US- Schlagzeugers, Jamal Thomas mit seiner Band, The Jamal Thomas Band auf den Markt: drei Goldene Schallplatten mit der S. O. S. Band und achtzehn Jahre auf dem Drumhocker hinter Maceo Parker (James Brown) sind Teil der charismatischen Identität des in Belgien wohnenden Thomas, der vor Allem mit seinem schweren "Pocket Groove“ Berühmtheit in der Musikszene erlangte und nicht zuletzt auch dadurch zu den 500 besten Schlagzeugern der Welt auf Drummerworld.com gewählt wurde.
In „Funk Don't Move“ vereint Jamal Thomas seine in 40 Jahren ausgereifte geballte Funk-, Soul- und R'n'B- Identität mit jungen und talentierten Musikern Europas. Die ausdrucksstarke und faccetenreiche Sängerin, Maya Lisa, ist eine von ihnen. Gemeinsam mit J.Thomas trägt die niederländische Wahl-Kölnerin das neue Album durch die Gezeiten der Songs. Stürmische Grooves und Wellen warmer Klangfarben definieren das brandneue Album der Jamal Thomas Band:

Funk Don't Move - It Grooves!



english version
"Funk Don't Move" is the third solo album of the successful US-drummer, Jamal Thomas with his group, The Jamal Thomas Band: three golden records with the SOS band and eighteen years on the drum stool behind Maceo Parker (James Brown) are part of the charismatic identity of the now Belgian resident, who is famous amongst musicians for his heavy "pocket groove" and was voted one of the 500 best drummers in the world at Drummerworld.com.
On "Funk Don't Move", Jamal Thomas combines his 40 years of well-developed, concentrated Funk, Soul and R'n'B experience with young and talented musicians from Europe. The expressive and diverse vocalist, Maya Lisa, is one of them. Together with Thomas, the Dutch girl from Cologne sings through the tides of the songs. Stormy grooves and waves of warm colors define the brand-new album of the Jamal Thomas Band:

Funk Don't Move - It Grooves
