For over four decades, Tower Of Power have been the one of the premier soul, funk and rock bands of our time. Captivating audiences all over the world, the mighty Bay Area ensemble continues to tour extensively and release great music as proven with their 1976 smash Live And In Living Color.
Live And In Living Color reigns as one of the most notable live albums in funk history. With six super long jams from the pens of founders Emilio Castillo (alto sax/vocals) and Stephen Kupka (baritone sax/vocals), the LP did well on the r&b radio formats as well as rock and jazz outlets across the country. Especially with the incredible live version of their top charting smash "What Is Hip?" which is currently featured in the hit HBO TV show "Vinyl."
Further T.O.P. champions like Knock Yourself Out, Down To The Nightclub and the soulful ballad grooves of "Youre Still A Young Man and Sparkling In The Sand made this album truly memorable.
Long time member David Garibaldi kicks out his awesome TOP drum sound on this masterwork, along with the incredible horn attack of Castillo and Kupka, with the late great Mic Gillette. Check out Chester Thompson's thrilling keyboard stylings along side the solid vocal artistry of Hubert Tubbs....truly a winning sound from these Oakland superstars.
