It's a Funky Thing to Do was Hank Crawford's final recording for Atlantic after a commercially successful ten-year run. The soulful altoist is backed by a funky rhythm section (either Eric Gale or Cornell Dupree on guitar, keyboardist Richard Tee, Chuck Rainey or Ron Carter on electric bass, and drummer Bernard Purdie) that often sounds as if it is just going through the motions. Crawford plays well, as usual but, other than "Parker's Mood," none of the seven selections are particularly memorable nor do they stand out from the crowd. ~ Scott Yanow
