Funny, judging from the early 70s live stuff I've got recently there was always a lounge/mor level to his material even at his funkiest. He was doing MOR stuff in the late 60s between being the 12 year old genius and doing the early 70s run.
Don't know if he was actually doing funk stuff at the time (early 80s?) that was just eclipsed in popularity by the LOw Com DEnom stuff that was all over the charts. Chances are that if he was it wouldn't be the stuff being played so much in public anyway. Not only was that stuff trite but it appealed to the wider audience so was heard. I think the wider audience may want music that doesn't distract from other tasks and just operates on a background 'soma' level
