Like many of the other reviewers I have always rated Joe's playing and choice of material highly. This time I have found it very difficult assess. Firstly, I am sure that the playing and general musicianship of all those involved on this CD is top notch however they are playing material which is in a 70's funk style - a style I do not like. Having played the CD at home it did nothing for me. I have since played it in the car where I was a captive audience for an hour or so but with the same results. I cannot even think of anyone to give it to.

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.

Remember the late 60's / early 70's when jazz/rock fusion was the new music? When concerts were principally for the benefit of the musicians rather than the audience, and a number could go on interminably? Remember the likes of The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Soft Machine et al and of course, the great Jeff Beck - well, hit the buffers, wind the clock back 40 years and what you get on this here album is precisely what I am talking about - but in more manageable time signatures and more manageable track lengths!
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!

Yes! This album is just what I have been waiting for. For years I've wanted to make a retro 70's porno, but there has been a paucity of new music to provide the soundtrack. Thankfully, now I have this album, I can grow my moustache, go out and buy some brown corduroy flares and cast the buxom, permed leading lady. I have my old camcorder, I've hidden all the lady shaves and I think we're all ready to go! With the exception of the track with the drum solo (Animal/Work), which would probably confuse and frighten the "actors", there is a great mix of funky sounds, schmoozy grooves and classy instrumental lounge cuts, perfect for every "getting it on" mood. I'm thinking we should probably avoid the schoolgirl scenario, given the current public mood, but the bored housewife/plumber scenario is always a classic. What do you think?

This is an excellent album, by the way. Love it.

A rare piece of new music that takes you back to the seventies and Jeff Beck 'Starcycle' style of music. If you only like Bonomassa blues stuff you may want to check it out first before buying.

There's one thing you can never do and that is put Joe Bonamassa in any one particular style. Started out playing some great blues on one of my all time favourite albums' Blues De Lux', since then we've had rock, some Greek tpe material, folky type, the live album covered all bases and very well too, since then more live things from the Beacon Theatre (not bad0 and the Royal Albert Hall( by and large great stuff), then Driving which got us back on track with a superb return to form and material. On the side there's also been BCC three albums and a live set ,all very good indeed, now we get a wholly instrumental set of pure and brilliant funk. The rate this guy puts stuff out it's a wonder his fans don't go bust, with another live album almost here of his acoustic show in Vienna last year ...Phew ! We Want To Groove for me is a major success, the whole band are just rock solid and Joe's been brought inrto his drummer's other band,I'm talking here of Tal Bergman,mind how he fits it in is beyond me as Joe seems to be on tour forever. Add Renato Neto on keyboards,and boy he's good,Ron DeJesus on guitar as well,Mike Merritt on real funky and pretty awesome bass and you have a band that grooves all night.You won't sit still to some of this stuff I'll guarentee. Tracks such as the opening Octopus -e , We Want Groove, Animal/Work and Dope On A rope are funk art it's absolute best. The whole wonderful album grooves as music this great should, nine tracks that pure listening pleasure. Some might find it strange that there's no vocals from Joe , fear not this is grooving awesome guitar playing from one of today's master's, the typr of guitar groove set by the likes of Joe satriani and Matt Schofield. Rock Candy Funk Party is a great name for some of the best funk you'l have heard in a very long time. The local record shop were raving about it,and quite rightly too.Absolutely recommended for all groovers and funksters, and fans of great music!
