An obscure little modern soul groover – with a jazzy funk touch that you wouldn’t expect from a record cut at Malaco Studios and released on the southern soul heavy Chimneyville imprint – usually home to much rootsier material!
The group’s got a soaring groove – with a lot of uptempo moments and few mellower ones – always exuberant, and filled with a sense of joy and power that really comes through right away!
The groove is upbeat, and has the same sense of positive energy you’ll find in the lyrics and tight instrumentation – and titles include “Dance To The Funk“, “Come & Go Away With Me“, “You Make Me So Happy“, “Reachin Out“, “Time Is Wasting“, “Don’t Be Lonely“, and “Trust In Me“.
