Thoughts:
Ghost Funk is just … ectoplasm, right?

I feel so funky.

Ok, Ghost Funk Orchestra is ten-piece outfit lead by Seth Applebaum that play a 1970s jazz/funk fusion style that sounds the score of films never made.  The improvisational feel makes it more than just a retro project, though. The music is also reminiscent (deliberately) of Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings and Antibalas.
