The best thing about Funk is, they boldly go, where very few can follow.

As always, I will try to post some of the less known, but I must admit that I had not listen to any of this stuff for couple of decades now.

Mandrill, from 1971.

Funk = Stink!
Well, it depends, stinking I mean.
My favourite remains Pangaea by Miles Davis. 
No
Funk = Donld Byrd; Funkadelik; Parliament; Snarky Puppy; Tower of Power; Stanley Clark; Stanley Turrentine; Soul Makossa; Marcus Miller; Billy Cobham; Dr John; Stevie Wonder 
Not = Stink or did you mean Sting?
Not = Sting.
James Brown
I dig much, Strawberry Letter #23 as covered by the Bros. Johnson. (Much as I love Shuggie). 
Remember these guys?

Alexatpos, thanks for the tip on Mandrill!  Digging into their catalog on Tidal now!

My dearest flavor of funk is The Meters.  Here's my desert island album:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Io0FzQqKYKQ
Cymbop, you are welcome. Glad you like it, maybe you will like some of the more jazzy stuff ? How about this?

While most people view Steely Dan as jazz based rock, I've always thought there was some (funk) "in the mix".
