These folk bring a new meaning to the term Different. Check out "Jazz Potato". It starts out, pure "D" jazz and turns into a groove with voice and music arrangements. It makes feel as though this group is a must see concert.
As I listened to this CD (literally from day until night) my favorite selections changed about three times. I couldn't seem to hear enough of it. Choose your instrument. Xylophones? You must hear "Get Up Get Down". Trumpets and jazz synthesizers? Listen to "Winds of Change/Earth Roots". It is a melodic musical that makes a statement. A specific statement is, and I quote, "This (the tune) comes into being by us traveling throughout the country and the world. We often find crackpots who wrongly say that jazz musicians do not know how to play a melody." They then begin .... the groove. Percussions, lead into synthesizers and trumpet solos that continue through one long crescendo of grooves.
This is a great CD. "Down to the Bone" is an appropriate name for the band because their affect on me definitely caused a groove that went down to the bone.
