"This CD seemed to have fallen between the cracks for a while... but its been a top pick of mine for ages, and though I'm a fan of the classic Blue Note funk and soul Jazz sound that many of these acid, groove and jam bands emulate, this is one of the few groups of the '90s that I've been willing to admit to my collection. - - A steamy B3 group, this CD was recorded when Acid Jazz was big in the UK and virtually unheard of here in the US. By the time I came across a cut of this great band in Japan (doing a mega burning steamed up version of Spinning Wheel as I recall) acid Jazz had all but been declared dead and played out in Europe, then suddenly, several years behind the times, we in the US got with it and had our own Jam band scene. What I like most about this band though is that they're much more tight, soulful, fun, energetic and fun to listen to than the bands that followed. If my memory serves me correct, this is a JT side project, but I'm not too sure on it. Whatever the case, this is not just another groove band, this is *the* groove band that came before all the others got with it... so if you're down with the B3 sound and like a bit of funky hot sauce with your groove... definitely, get this one (!)"
