Funk, Pop
Morris Day and the Time performed at the Grammys in 2008 and, under the name the Original 7ven, released their first album in 21 years in 2011. Those years marked the beginning stage of the band's second overall reunion. They've remained active during the 2010s, and the passing of Prince, who put together the band in the '80s as an extension of his Warner Bros. contract, gave their 2016 special significance. Day's swaggering playboy persona remains charming, and the other members are still relevant in their own right. Monte Moir, for example, was given a writing credit on Rihanna's "Work" for its interpolation of Alexander O'Neal's "If You Were Here Tonight." To focus on the Time's individual parts, though, doesn't do them justice. Whether it's on a signature hit like "Jungle Love" or one of their jammy deep cuts, their music has always had the ineffable, collaborative energy that defines so much of the best funk. With Mina Moore. All ages.
