The Epitome of the late '60s Blue Note Organ Funk Groove !
Eddie Landsberg | Tokyo, Japan | 06/13/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD will go in and out of print. If its in print, grab it, if its out - - pray it comes back or a used copy is posted because this is *THE* definitive funky organ groove CD. Recorded in December of '69, its a strong follow up to Reuben's funky LOVE BUG CD - - despite not having the dream team line up of his previous CD which featured George Coleman, Grant Green, Lee Morgan and Idris Muhammad, this one is actually stronger and funkier, thanks in part to the presence of Melvin Sparks on the guitar. (John Manning on sax, Tommy Derrick on drums) - - The groove is timeless organic Memphis Soul meets JB funk - - Reuben kicks those trademark boogaloo style basslines, while firing all those mean licks with his right hand... John Manning's playing is gritty and wicked - - clearly if you want to go deep down in the vaults looking for the best '60s Blue Note funk you can find, this *is* it. If you like this CD, check out some Charles Kynard too !"
Cool funk grooves by an artist who pioneered Acid Jazz.

"Cool funk grooves by one of the artists who started Acid Jazz. An amazing keyboard player combined with a great band. The sax is very good. If you like the Greyboy Allstars you will see where they are coming from."
