I've seen P-Funk/ George Clinton twice. They become kind of fuzzy/ indistinct after a while, and repetitive. Maceo Parker's show remains clean, distinct, fresh, and classy- even on the same songs.

I think my favourite Parliament would have to be Chocolate City.

Men on the chessboard are a new up and coming funk band that I think are heavily influenced by the chilli peppers.

I think i'd like to expand my musical interest into the world of soul/funk.
Any recommendations for funk beginner ears?
I want to get my groove on.

I just recently discovered Gil-Scott Heron after hearing about his passing in the news. I was wondering if anyone could recommend some other 70's soul/funk/jazz in a similar vein?
really what I'm looking for is something with the dark meaningful lyrics and musicianship in his earlier albums.

Question Eddie Hazel

Looking for similar artists/guitarists to Eddie Hazel. I'm new to his music, so if anyone could recommend some albums, I would appreciate it ! Love that type of guitar work.

Your post is a couple of months old, but just in case your still around the boards. If you want pacifically good funk, I would suggest the 70s.

Earth, Wind, & Fire
Commodores
Ohio Players
Average White Band (AWB)
Sly & The Family Stone
The Isley Brothers
The Brothers Johnson
Rick James
James Brown
Parliament/Funkadelic

This is awesome, thank you. I loved The Brothers Johnson and Sly & The Family Stone. Really good recommendations!

Thanks again!

Edgar Winter's record Recycled is a great mix of soul, funk and blues. Check out the songs Competition and Parallel Love. Nice choppy guitar in this stuff. Stevie Wonder's "Fufilling First Finale" is a great record with a great track "Bird of Beauty. A little more out there stuff in the jazz funk vein is by John Scofield entitled "A Go Go". If you are a musical adventurer I highly recommend this release. I am currently in a R&B/soul original band called Escape Fantasy. You can check our debut CD at CDbaby.com. So much music so little time. Take Care.
