Both elements are widely recognized, but there’s much more than meets the eye: Toto’s funk secret weapon turns out to be bassist David Hungate. Hungate, a key part of Boz Scaggs’ Silk Degrees sessions, brings a distinctive and driving reinforcement to Porcaro’s backbeat. On “Georgy Porgy,” his impact in evident. Musicians don’t get more versatile than Hungate who, after his stint with Toto, moved to Nashville to become an accomplished session career and stellar producer.
