Brooklyn Funk Essentials is a music collective who mix jazz, funk, and hip hop, featuring musicians and poets from different cultures. The band was conceived in 1993 by producer Arthur Baker and bassist and musical director Lati Kronlund. In the mid-1990s, the group became a staple of the New York City club scene. Their debut album Cool and Steady and Easy (1995) scored an underground hit with the rendition of Pharoah Sanders' "The Creator Has a Master Plan".

Though lacking in some of the charming quirkiness of their previous efforts, Watcha Playin certainly brings the funk. It would be nit picking to complain that it's often a little too smooth and easy, that the soul to funk ratio favors the former more than I would like. Great album and as unassailably groovy as anything they've done. 3 people found this helpful.
