A great step forward for The Bamboos – still as funky as ever, but in a much greater range of styles than before! The core deep funk sound we've always loved is still burning away at the bottom – thanks to the ever-trusty grooves of Lance Ferguson and crew – but this time around, there's also a host of guests who really seem to shape the overall feel of the record – Aloe Blacc, Megan Washington, Klye Auldist, Daniel Merriweather, Bobby Flynn, and Ella Thompson – each bringing in their own great flavors, and creating a depth of sound that's mighty nice! Most of these guests are vocalists, but their shifting styles seems to spur the instrumentation onto new heights too – adapting to suit the mood, yet never in a way that's too frenetic to keep the album from being unified overall. Titles include "Where Does The Time Go", "What I Know", "I Got Burned", "Cut Me Down", "Midnight", "Medicine Man", "Window", and "Hello Stranger".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tombstone
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2013. New Copy
These guys just keep getting better and better with each new record – really transforming the older sound of New Orleans into a rich new groove – one that's not just jazz, street music, or conventional brass band – but a really unique hybrid of all those modes and more! The album ... CD
Pax Volumi
Tru Thoughts (UK), 2013. New Copy
Wonderful work from this combo who really live up to the "young blood" in their name – way more than just a standard brass band, as they draw on styles from a range of genres that include funk and hip hop, plus a slight touch of punk as well! There's an edge to the performance that ... CD
Power Struggle
Record Kicks (Italy), 2013. New Copy
Smoking Afro Funk from down under – played by a tight combo from Sydney who rival the best of the contemporary global underground! The horns here are very powerful – not a "struggle" but more of a blast of righteous energy that really puts the group firmly on the map – ... CD
Ubiquity, 2013. New Copy
A really wonderful collaboration between Shawn Lee and Adrian Quesada – and a set that maybe goes further than a lot of recent work from the artists on their own! Quesada's ear for the psychedelic mixes wonderfully with Lee's funky grooves – in a space that's as trippy as it is soulful ... CD
Play It Again
Keep On Boppin (Netherlands), 2008. New Copy
Funky grooves from Basque country – an unlikely location, but one that turns up some surprisingly great work from this sharp-edged little combo! The Cherry Boppers have a name that might be a little hokey, but they hooked us in right from the start with their tight version of classic funk ... CD
13 Degrees Of Reality
Now Again/Stones Throw, 2013. New Copy
If this is reality, lead us onward – as the set is a mindblowing batch of trippy psych-funk from The Heliocentrics – even more offbeat and experimental than before, in ways that make the combo the true heirs to the legacy first begun by Stark Reality! The album's definitely funky at ... CD
Crossing
Daptone, 2012. New Copy
Sublime work from one of the coolest funky combos around – a group who aren't content to just hit the same funky styles as other outfits – and one who really stretch strongly in their pursuit of new sounds! The set's definitely funky – especially on the drums – but there's ... CD
Budos Band III
Daptone, 2010. New Copy
A great third album from Staten Island instrumental funk titans The Budos Band – who've brought eclectic inspiration all along and have always colored from a much broader palette of styles than most of their peers – going even further this time out and delivering their best yet! The ... CD
Faithful Man
Truth & Soul, 2012. New Copy
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a ... CD
Pool
Yellow Bird (Germany), 2012. New Copy
A group who's as playful and offbeat as their image on the cover – kind of an unusual hybrid of modes that seems to hearken back to the more creative groups of the German post-punk years, particularly some of the artists on the AtaTak label! The sound here is heavy on keyboards and ... CD
Flow Lines
Tokyo Dawn (Germany), 2012. New Copy
Warm instrumentation blended nicely with electronics and soulful vocals – and the first we've heard from Positive Flow in a little while – sounding as fresh as ever here on the first PF full length for the Tokyo Dawn label! Keys and beats flow nicely under live strings, flute, sax and ... CD
