All About the Funk (stylized as Allabouthefunk) is a funk album released by the Brand New Heavies. After their most identifiable lead singer N'Dea Davenport left the band to pursue a solo career in the mid-90s, the band rotated in several African-American singer/songwriters Siedah Garrett, Carleen Anderson, and Sy Smith as lead vocalists on previous projects. This independent follow-up release features British singer Nicole Russo on vocals for the entire project.

The Brand New Heavies. A belated American issue of the Brand New Heavies' 2004 album Allabouthefunk was already fundamentally outdated by the time it hit . This is the sole Brand New Heavies album to feature singer Nicole Russo (the great N'Dea Davenport came back to the fold for 2006's Get Used to It), and likely due to Russo's comparatively lightweight voice, this is easily the fluffiest and most pop-oriented album of the band's career.

The Brand New Heavies is the debut album by British acid jazz and funk group The Brand New Heavies. After signing with Acid Jazz, the band released "People Get Ready" as a vinyl single backed with "Gimme One Of Those". Their next release, in 1990, was the single "Dream Come True" featuring Jay Williamson, then known as Jay Ella Ruth, on vocals. The same year, the band released their self-titled debut on Acid Jazz Records in a largely instrumental version

Davenport became a fully integrated member of the band on Brother Sister (1994), the album that catapulted the Brand New Heavies to worldwide attention. Dream on Dreamer" landed in the middle of the pop charts while "Spend Some Time" and "Back to Love" garnered a generous amount of club play.
