AIN’T NOTHIN BUT THE FUNK
Johnny Britt featuring Tom Browne
Los Angeles (May 2024)
J-Jams Records proudly announces the RnB release of the funky “Ain’t
Nothin But The Funk” featuring Tom Browne. This Summer Funk
Anthem is Britt’s follow up to his recent hit singles “Ocean Waves”
featuring Blair Bryant, “Butterflies” featuring Will Downing and “After
We Play” featuring Peter White.
The first young trumpet player to inspire Britt was Tom Browne when
he saw him in Paris, France while studying trumpet at The
Conservatoire de Versailles. “When Tom agreed, I immediately went
into the recording studio to record “Ain’t Nothin’ But The Funk.”
“To have Tom Browne battling it out with me on trumpet is a dream
come true. Two of the most soulful trumpet players in the business —
we are throwing it down on “Ain’t Nothin’ But The Funk.”
Reminiscent of “Jamaica Funk” this track goes down that same funky
lane. This is a stepper’s jam everyone will be partying to this summer.
