The record pushes past the easy Latin pop style of the late 60s, and features Jose working through hip rock tunes — both of his own creation, and by writers like Elton John and Cat Stevens. The real highlight of the album is an incredible reading of "Wild World" — done with a mix of fast guitar, strings, and even a bit of Brazilian-tinged scatting that breaks down in the middle and always makes us stop cold!

Memphis Menue is an excellent album from Jose Feliciano — recorded with a lot of Memphis soul influences, as the title indicates, but still with that beautifullly jazzy style that he was using in his earlier LA recordings. Steve Cropper helped produced and arrange with Jose, and the Memphis Horns back up the group on a number of tracks.

The real charm, though, is Jose — whose breezy vocals and sweet guitar work is right up there with his best work of the time, a sublime mix of soul, strings, jazz, and Chicano grooves. Compartments is sparklingly soulful work from Jose Feliciano — a key early 70s effort, and one that shows the growing sensitivity in his music — the move way past simple covers of other people's songs, even though those were pretty great too!

Jose's voice has gotten even more compelling in the process, and he's also developing a bit as a songwriter too — most notably on the album's title track, which was co-written with Bill Withers. Given Pixinguinha's more familiar expressions on reeds — the approach here is a really nice change, and quite different than other tributes to his music over the years — very personal and poetic in the way that Hamilton approaches the tunes, and given extra special inflections by the guests.

The oft-sampled title track is probably familiar to anyone who knows anything about Joe Farrell or even CTI. The tune itself is not much, but the improvisations provided by Farrell on tenor sax and Joe Beck on guitar are worthy enough. That is until Beck and company chime in with a regrettably dated wakka-wakka rhythm guitar part and lots of stick work on the high hat. Beck does get inspired to provide his own spiritually beautiful solo here, though; something that brings him — and Canned Funk - back to the jazz these guys could do so well.

In all fairness, jazz music was experiencing a major shift in May , when Canned Funk was released. Farrell himself would go this way when he accepted a million-dollar contract with Warner Bros. Canned Funk surely marks the end of an era.
