"i have a tendency to like more music than i dislike, but i rarely gush over an album. this album is so damn great though, it's tough to talk about without getting a little emotional. slide five, just a piano (fender rhodes), guitar, and drums trio, lay down some of the best retro-sounding funky jazz i've ever heard. in fact, i was so blown away by rhode trip that i practically bought the entire ubiquity catalog after hearing it (ubiquity was much smaller then). on rhode trip, slide five rarely play as a trio - session saxophonist jacko peake is featured on most of the tracks and he sounds extremely comfortable, as if he were a part of the band from the get-go. the music has a warm and mellow groove to it, and while the solos are strong, the group seems just as interested in creating melodic choruses and fine backing melodies. after 100s of listens, i still love it. beginning to end, it's quite possibly the best modern jazz-funk recording available."
