The Funk Brothers

In 1959, Berry Gordy gathered the finest musicians from Detroit's happening jazz and blues scene to begin cutting tracks for his newly formed label. They were the backbone of songs like "My Girl," "Bernadette," I Was Made to Love Her," and every single hit from Motown's Detroit era, creating the soundtrack for America’s youth and subsequently that of the world’s. After an extraordinary 14-year run, this largely unknown group of musicians had played on more number ones hits than the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones, Elvis and the Beatles combined; making them the greatest hit machine in the history of popular music. Original members include Bob Babbitt, Uriel Jones, and Joe Hunter.
