    So I was listening to Incubus and "Summer Romance (Anti-Gravity Love Song)" came on and memories of days of yore rushed into my head. I like the funky jazzy feel Incubus put into that song, can anyone else recommend me some other artists with that sort of feel?

    I used iTunes Genius tool and it really didn't help out as much as I had hoped, and a general search for Funky Jazz turned up broad, vague, ambiguous and other synonymous synonyms.

    (It's so obvious I spell fuck more than funky, as I just fixed 3 typos...)

    Well, I haven't heard that song, but when I hear the term "funky jazz," I think of early Jamiroquai, specifically their first two albums, Emergency on Planet Earth and The Return of the Space Cowboy. Also try Incognito. And if you really dig funk, Headhunters by Herbie Hancock and the Headhunters is awesome.

    Hmmm, interesting choices. I know I already am not a fan of Jamiroquai, I'll try Headhunters. But anything more Jazzy? Maybe something you could hear in a jazz club or tea house sorta shit but more modern.
