Sophisticated Funk is an album by organist Jack McDuff recorded in 1976 and released on the Chess label.[2]

Reception

The Allmusic site awarded the album 2 stars stating "This forgettable effort from Jack McDuff veers far too close to smooth jazz territory for comfort -- swapping his signature Hammond B-3 for keyboards, McDuff settles for a fusion sound suggesting a particularly tepid CTI session, with none of the swagger and groove of his most memorable records".[1]
