5.0 out of 5 stars the best funk album in the world.......ever?, 9 May 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Life on Planet Groove (Audio CD)
If you've ever been looking for that funk album to play loud on a sunny day, this is the one.
Recorded from a European tour, this album contains classic grooves and outstanding musicianship - put simply, every track is a winner.
The opener, shake everything you've got, is a 14+ minute workout, and sets the tone for the rest of the album. Even the slower numbers continue to ooze pure funk.
Apart from the obvious appeal of Mr Parker & friends blowing, just listen to the drums - solid but imaginative all the way through.
A great discovery, now the only thing missing is a live performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars If this don't rock your boat..., 10 May 2008

Can't argue with aforementioned reviews. Had chance to photograph the JB'S at a jazz club in Brentwood after they had spent day recording. Jazz soon broke into "Funky stuff", most of it on this cracking album. Buy, crank up, & shake your Bootie!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the funkiest (live) album ever recorded, 23 April 2013
This review is from: Life on Planet Groove (Audio CD)
This fantastic album not only captures the great live performances that Maceo has been giving for year and years and years , but it is an absolutely fantasticly produced despite being live and is soooo funky it's a little scary.

If you don't like some heavy / screaming sax, this might not be for you , but if you do and do not already own it all I can say is : get it.

I've been listening to it for 20 years, yet it still sounds fresh and gives me happy feelings all over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best funk jazz album you'll ever hear, 7 Jan. 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Life on Planet Groove (Audio CD)
This album is TOO GOOD to play every day. The first track "Shake everythin you got" is a tour de force - and basically reminds me of sex - good sex. The album is superb all the way through and it has converted countless friends hooked on trance or garage to get into something a little more jazzy - a little more meaningful. This is a live recording which really adds to the mood and atmosphere - brilliant. I have had the privilege of seeing Maceo play live - this is as close as it gets.
