Lurking in the shadows of Dennis Coffey on Sussex Records was another funky guitarist from Detroit, Eddy Senay.  There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about Senay's background, but he recorded a couple of LPs that are well worth seeking out if you are a fan of funk guitar.   More Grant Green than Eddie Hazel, Senay's style is understated and may appear too slow for casual fans. But the demand for "Cameo," "Safari," and his take on labelmate Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" attests to the pure funk at the core of his sophisticated playing.
