Stimulator Jones —
La Mano ... LP MutualIntentions, 2021. New Copy ...
A nice little record – one without much information on the over, but a wealth of jazzy sounds inside! Stimulator Jones play jazz funk, but they're not entirely a jazz group – as the approach here is more varied, and the tunes change in style and length – almost making the whole thing feel like some Dusty Fingers-styled compilation of rare jazzy nuggets from back in the day – save for the fact that the whole thing has a bit more of a unified production vibe overall! There's lots of funky drums, sweet keyboards, and a nice mix of cosmic and crispy styles – on titles that include "Prince Sammy", "Don't Be Afraid", "Tripp Cisco", "Chuck Taylor Strut", "Bout Dat Love", "Shaman's Dose", "Late Night With Terry Phillmore", "Floatin On", and "Drama Time".
