Cool Grooves and Funky Moods
JD Miller | Allentown, PA United States | 10/07/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD combines aspects of Jazz, Funk and Blues beautifully. First, you have one hell of a rhythm section with drumming and bass work that really thumps your mid-section. Next you have the gravel-scratched voice of their singer (who only appears on a few songs). The melodies are provided by Guitar, Organ and Sax. The production values are great...this doesn't meant the music is can simply hear all of the instruments perfectly at low and high volume. The band provides lots of pictures and liner notes with all of their CDs. The other thing that's interesting is their use of technology to bring their music to fans. If you go to [their] site: you can read about the band, how they started and where they are going. You'll also get suggestions are more artisit from this genre. I hope this band can manage to stay together - they are so young and, yet, sound so experienced and comfortable with each other. They also have a consistent (not repetitive) sound across all of their CDs. I think you'll enjoy this one."
A great start for an awesome band
starguitar | Philippines | 12/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was my first funk/jazz CD, and it changed my whole perspective on music. Amazing musicality built on such simple riffs and themes is present here, from the guitar to the organ, from the sax to the trumpet, no instrument overlaps another, everything is superbly organized and layered. This band comes complete with and African-American singer, giving the music the soul of a black man with the blues, even though he only sings in a couple of tracks. Other than that, the wah of the guitar provides the soul at some points, then it is replaced by a solo "battle" between the sax and trumpet. The music then shifts to a jungley mood with great drumming and trumpeting. There is also a percussion intermission with more guitaring, and the final song features trombone and organ solos, and a free-for-all jamming session, even though the whole CD sounds like a jam. Either way, this is good stuff, it made an impression on me at the very least. You want funk? Look no further."
Top 3 Albums Ever
The Dubs | 08/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you're going to own a funk cd, or any cd for that matter, get this one. I don't throw the term "favorite album" around lightly, and this is definitely one of my top 3 favorite albums. Maybe it didn't change the face of music like Kind of Blue or Darkside of the Moon did, but it is truly great. If you're looking for an album that can get you movin, this is the one. BUY THIS ALBUM!!!"
