Product Description

Bridging the channel between smooth jazz and hip-bop/acid jazz are Down to the Bone, a band that mixes live horns with grooves and beats and comes up with something classy smooth. Down to the Bone are more about the dance floor than the listening room, but they do spice the mix with some up-front horn charts and often use interesting instrumentation (is that an oboe?) to keep things moving. --S. Duda

Product Description

1996 album by this moody, acid jazz/ trip hop act. Features10 enticing instrumentals, including Staten Island Grooveand Brooklyn Heights. An Internal Bass Records release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happening tracks from an excellent band! 9 April 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Down To The Bone, released on the Internal Bass label.... Their first album, full of hapenning vibes and jazzy grooves. A definite choice for the collection! Staten Island Groove gets the CD going with a kick! whilst Brooklyn Heights is cool, mellow with excellent jazz pianist interludes. Muesli Brown is my personal favourite - absolutely fantastic sounds to get down to. What will your favourite be? Down To The Bone are also a MUST to see live - their album is excellent but nowhere as good as the real thing! Needless to say, their second album is fantastic too! If you like Down to the Bone, also check out bands such as Yada Yada and Mr Gone. If you're into latin jazz, also check out Bossa Nostra. They will definitely be right up your street!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic Jazz 3 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
This is only one of the fantastic albums from DTTB.
This UK band just exudes talent that should appeal across the ages, from tender teen to hip-hop OAP. I have followed DTTB from the outset and can honestly say that within the next 12 months, that they will be racking up the hits. Good buy, good listen, good vibes.

5.0 out of 5 stars get em all 4 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If Rare Groove's your thing, so this should be. Basically, DTTB take the sound of classic acid jazz and rare groove, add strong hip-hoppy grooves and give it a contemporary spin. The playing's spot on, being both tight and meaty. Imagine early Brand New Heavies with more muscle. The best thing is they give off this cool, urban vibe. If you buy this, go and then get the other 4 albums.

Amazon have not got the right code for this on their site so if you order, you'll get something completely different. Rather annoying as have been after this on vinyl for years :(

3.0 out of 5 stars 'Very Samey' 18 May 2014
By Antony May TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
'From Manhattan To Staten' is one of those albums that gradually loses its appeal the longer it goes on. All of the tracks are smooth, Jazzy grooves with hypnotic bass lines, piano solos, horns, pata-pata drums and the usual 'smooth groove feel'. Most are also slow to start, gradually building long drawn-out affairs and while the best of these ('Staten Island Groove') reminds me a little of 70's funkers, The Players Association, just about gets away with outstaying its welcome, the further into the set you get the more frustrated you feel about the similarity of the groove and length of each jam. I say 'jam' because that is essentially what these 'songs' are - the titles are pretty much irrelevant really.

There is a certain amount of 'borrowing' from classic dance tracks of the past as well as 'Yo Mama's So Phat' sounds like a cleverly disguised smooth jazz version of 'Your The One For Me' by D Train to me and One Way might also recognise the riff on '17 Mile Drive' from their 'Get It Over' track.

To be fair, in small doses this album will get your foot tapping and move yo ass in a classy, slinky way but as a whole its just way too much of the same ol' same ol' for these ears.
