A sweet little single from Menahan Street Band! "Lights Out" has this slow funk brilliance that's almost lifted off a rare 70s soundtrack – beats that are hard, but mellow too – topped by these snakey horns that really bring in a blue sort of feel to the music – almost an Ethiopian feel, but funkier! "Keep Coming Back" is awash in Hammond lines right from the start – swing-stepping like a cool 60s instrumental, complete with some wangly guitar – all again in a slow mode that's really a nice change from the usual!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Tramp (Germany), 2006. New Copy
Leave it to Tramp Records to make our turntable happy – because both cuts here are totally great! "Mo Slow" is a snapping little jazz number that feels like it was lifted from a mid 60s Lee Morgan album – less the deep funk that the label first gave us years back – and ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
