Always loved what that gifted musician produced. That LP is no exception, it is most enjoyable, the grooves exposed in this album are great.

2009's Funk Masterpiece 18 Mar. 2009
By Dan Bergevin - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Chris Joss is the most amazing Master of Funk alive. He can make funky music with any and all sounds - beats, bass, guitar, sitar, flutes, strings, or keys.

Sticks is extremely infectious party music. It is a hybrid between Dr. Rhythm and Teraphonic Overdubs (not to discredit or downplay Spiked and The Man With a Suitcase). Which means if you like Chris Joss's most original and wild sounds, then Sticks will be right up your alley.

Shoudl be the next album you buy, without hesitation!
Yes it's good, but ... 19 Aug. 2009
By Peace Brotha - Published on

I am a big Joss fan. I have everything he's put out since the Dr. Rhythm days and sing his praises to anyone that is looking for new tunes that are not within the mainstream. His creativity and output are always good to great.

That said, something about 'Sticks' just doesn't do it for me like his other releases. Rather than this sounding like a Chris Joss project, it sounds like an ESL project with Joss flavor. There is a difference. I can applaud him wanting to go in a different direction than the other outings, but I'm puzzled as to why it sounds so MUCH like ESL releases from up to 3 years ago.

Whether this was the idea of Joss or the ESL label, I don't know. But I have enough ESL music in my collection to know that much of this music borrows from prior ideas that have been spun from their factory ... multiple times in some cases.

Good music, this - which is why I give it a solid 4 stars for those seeking that blend of styles that the prior reviewer correctly indicated. But Chris Joss set the bar high for himself with his prior releases. As a fan of both ESL and Joss, I expected more originality, more Joss-isms ... just more, period.

In short: if you're a die-hard Chris Joss fan like me, look at 'Sticks' as the latest general ESL release rather than a Chris Joss release. You won't be disappointed in the slightest.
Joss does it again 9 May 2010
By Mike Goldman - Published on

Sticks is another very groovy Joss release. Would you expect anything less from him? There is lots of good sitar playing on this. He seems to feature it on this album. I am bias towards spiked and man with a suitcase but this is worth the purchase and listen. Basically you can't go wrong with any of CJ and his work. Think 70's blaxploitation soundtracks and you'll get the idea. Let yourself be transformed into another time and space. Buy this what are you waiting for you will not be disappointed.
grooves your time 10 Nov. 2013

Great hanging-out it for Tune Down which I heard on the Downtempo station on Pandora. It's funky acid grooved music that you put on and it creates a great vibe. I like instrumental music like this that grooves your time with steady beats and funkified instrumental play. I will check into other Chris Joss titles.
Chris Joss ‎- Sticks 21 Oct. 2013
By scoundrel - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The sitar on "Little Nature," the first track on Chris Joss' STICKS, sounds like it's straight from a old psychedelic 45, while "Surrounded" pours on the funk. "Charmer" brings back the Indian influences, and things slow down for the soulful "Rififi Rococo." "Melisma Mercury" gets more resonant, with some saxophone work from easy jazz guru Praful, and the bass on "Night Scare" gives it some depth, as do the horns on "Tune Down." But despite these touches, the album tends to veer into background music, with nothing really to grab onto. Still, it's pleasant enough.
