I do not think that Joe shines very well with his playing as it is not particularly the dominant instrument. I thought that the bass playing, where it was the dominant was interesting and the drumming was crisp and quite inventive considering the style of music. The main sound seems to be produced by keys of some sort.
I don't like giving this only 2 stars as it is obviously not the style of music for me and therefore I am perhaps unqualified to judge it. I prefer Joe playing with any of his other rock/blues bands showing me what a virtuoso he really is on his chosen instrument.
The band comprises Joe and Ron DeJesus on guitars,Renato Neto on keyboards,Mike Merritt on bass, and Tal Bergman on drums,who also produces the CD and DVD. The DVD also includes the Official Music video of the opening track.The DVD has a very amateur feel to it, which adds to it's appeal.
The C.D comprises 9 instrumental tracks, all between 6 and 10 minutes long.I recommend you listen to it on headphones to appreciate it in it's full multi-textural glory. The first two tracks come out all guns blazing,then the next track pulls the tempo right down,starting with an ethereal space-traveller mood,which develops into another jam.The title track gives everyone a chance to shine.It's the sort of track which could be indefinitely extended in a live gig.Track 5 starts reflectively before establishing a repetitive bass riff over which everyone gets a chance.This would be ideal to de-stress after a bad day at work. Track 6 (Animal/Work) is the drummer's spotlight (Animal=Muppet drummer),with some excellent guitar work from Joe.Track 7 can best be described as a guitar-duel between Joe and Ron. Track 8 is very Isaac Hayes influenced.Read more ›
This is an excellent album, by the way. Love it.
BUT, and it is a rather large "but", how does it warrant Joe Bonamassa....most of what comes out here is a million miles from where JB normally plays (indeed, even his Black Country Communion albums established that he's no shredder or heavy rock guitarist - he is, frankly, a rather superlative blues player) and I do feel at times that he's actually lost among this company of musicians and indeed the choice of numbers!
However, forgetting the fact that we do have such a great guitarist among this band of musicians, the sound they make is very, very good indeed with "Ode To Gee" / "We Want Groove" / "Dope On A Rope" and "New York Song" demanding several repeat listenings as you storm through this collection of instrumentals.
The recording is reminiscent of the 70's style too which does bring an even greater listening pleasure to the whole proceedings.
Certainly if you like this genre of music, then you will be well rewarded for parting with your hard earned. BUT if you think that you're buying some more ear candy from Joe Bonamassa, sadly, you are going to be mightily disappointed!

Huge fan of RCFP! Each musician that plays is amazing in their own field. JB is as sterling as ever.Published 12 months ago by Chelsea J Ashcroft
This is a great vinyl record. It is nicely pressed on 2 LPs, and sounds great, really punchy and crisp. The funky grooves sound great on vinyl.Published on 30 May 2014 by Mirandy
This is a great album and I play it a lot.I came across this CD at my local library, and at first I thought that it was a dance album until I saw who was playing on it. Read morePublished on 11 Oct. 2013 by Joe
I bought this as a result of being impressed with one of the tracks, played on Radio 2. I think it's the best track on the album, but they're all good. Read morePublished on 17 Sept. 2013 by MR G HEMMINGSLEY
Fabulous album from a collection of great musicians who don't need to do this for the money - obviously a lot of respect for the music and some great playing.Published on 29 July 2013 by Mr. Mark Mcgillivray
Great musicianship just really not my thing.
If you live jazzy funk stuff - fill your boots - if you're thinking of buying it as it has Joe Bonnamassa on it - make sure you... Read more
