Busy is Good is an assemblage of rare-groove and jazz-funk cuts pulled from 45s of the 70s and 80s. A project that celebrates pure creative expression, these under-appreciated tracks reflect the individual efforts of artists both of their time and ahead of it; local legends who challenged convention and produced work steeped in ambition. From the seductively smooth "Twilight," by New York's own Febop, to the blistering key breaks and infectious funk of Bob Payne's "Side By Side", this anthology highlights the fusions and crossovers that occurred in jazz, rock, funk and soul at the time. Buddy Emmer's jazz-kissed breezer "That Summer Nite" and Forest's synth-pumped AOR cut "Crazy Days" further traverse the many styles that bloomed in the 70s and 80s.
