This album combines some rootsy New Orleans tunes (courtesy of Earl King), some pop-soul ballads, some funky jazz fusion, and more.

Funkify your life a little
Teresa L. Dalton | Seattle, WA, USA | 11/14/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As always, George Porter, Jr. produces cool, sophisticated, and funky sounds. The sly and earthy "Runnin' Partner" and "Rough Spots" stand out, and "I Wish" is one of the more poignant "On The Road" songs I've heard.

Porter's virtuosity on the bass is unparalleled, so far as I know, and this isn't as well show-cased with a larger band like the Runnin' Pardners as it is in a smaller group. Too bad, but the band is pretty awesome, also.

How Porter can be a Funky Meter, an Original Meter, a Runnin' Pardner, and George Porter, Jr., all at the same time, is a mystery, but it does mean that he works a lot and residents of the Crescent City are lucky enough to get to see and hear him a lot. This album might be the next best thing."
