AllMusic Review by

Kinda Jazzy Kinda Funky is a fine sampling of jazz artists and vocalists on the 2004 High Note roster. These previously released nine tracks consist of compositions from Melvin Sparks, Rodney Jones, Randy Johnston, Bill Heid, and David "Fathead" Newman along with Lalo Schifrin's "The Cat," performed by Joey DeFrancesco, and Houston Person's take on Johnny Griffin's "Sweet Sucker." This is a great way to get familiar with the High Note sound and audiophiles will be interested in knowing that this title, and the companion volume, Jazz in an R&B Groove, can be played on both standard CD players as well as SA-CD players.
