The Funky Knuckles belong to a new generation of improvising musicians, challenging the constraints of genre, but never losing sight of the groove. This is not your typical funk band…or jam band…or jazz band. The Funky Knuckles are something different entirely. This is the improvised music of the new generation, and it is continuously being redefined, even as it is performed. In recent years, Texas has gained a reputation as a hotbed for groove-oriented improvised music, and The Funky Knuckles have been a part of that movement for over a decade. It is a common occurrence to hear world-class musicians sitting in at their weekly residency in Dallas, and band members can be  seen as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, and Larry Carlton. The Funky Knuckles are releasing their fourth album, Delicious, in November 2019 on Ropeadope Records.
