Melvin Sparks
Groove On Up

Melvin Sparks is a guitar PLAYAH. No, he is the Master of the Groove, Funk, Soul, Soul-Jazz, Barbeque Funk, whatever you want to call it. Melvin is THE guitar player! Look up those terms in Webster's and you will see a picture of Melvin Sparks credited with being one of the originators of the genre. Having honed his skills over the decades performing on countless nights from New York clubs to rural roadhouses, Melvin developed a talent for innovation and heart-pounding boogaloo-stylings. Melvin has only one gear and that is groovin'. See what has made him the Funkmaster Supreme on his latest Savant recording.
