5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Note funk for the 21st century, 9 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Right Thing (MP3 Download)
It seems appropriate that the CD cover owes much to the Blue Note style of the early 1960's, because without being in any way derivative this four piece serve up huge slabs of jazzy funk, somewhat akin to the Lou Donaldson material of the early 60's.Most of the material is written by Johnny Davis the guitarist (track 10 is by Dominic Norcross the sax player) and therefore avoids the pitfall of them being labelled as mere copyists. There is some really strong material in a variety of tempos, and although it clearly wasn't, it sounds as if it might have been recorded 'live' in some smoky club.John-Paul Gard has plied his trade with a number of British bands, but in common with the other players sounds as though he's really enjoying himself when he's allowed to break-out, and the same goes for the rest of the quartet. Personal favourites are "Back in the Slot", "'Nother one later" and "H as in Heavy".
Obviously the best guide is to see them live, but it's to be hoped that this is the start of a recording history that will allow them to push the format even further. Highly recommended!
