Damn, we love these guys! And this time around, Osaka Monaurail sound harder and heavier than ever – very much back in their best 70s JBs mode – after a recent foray into 60s soul! The rhythms are incredibly tight – razor-sharp, with a forcefulness that few other funky combos can match – that hard-ripping groove you're usually only likely to find on the best James Brown productions from back in the day. Instrumental passages are at the forefront, too – which means a bit less vocals from group leader Ryo Nakata, although we still always love his unique funky soul approach when he does come into the mix. Titles include "Endemism", "Work Song", "Syrinxology", "Andrias Japonicus", "Stop Doggin Me Around", "Mother Popcorn" and "The Archipelago". 10 tracks on the vinyl version.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

There's a style here that really links up generation – a mode ... LP, Vinyl record album

Amazing – and after a decade it's still probably one of our favorite Ubiquity releases to date! To the unitiated, Rhode Trip is a killer album of jazzy funk by one of the best west coast groups on Ubiquity or any other label! They had some of the best cuts on the classic "Cookin'" ...
