The second Brooklin in the title here is a city in Brazil – referenced by the group as a place of new inspiration, which seems to come through in some occasionally more complicated rhythms on the set! If you love the previous work by this Hammond-heavy combo, don't fret – as there's plenty of funky organ here to love. But there's also some occasional nods to the legacy of Brazilian groove too – which breaks organist Adam Scone out of his deep funk box a bit, as he works alongside guitarist Jimmy James and tenorist Neal Sugarman – with a vibe that's nicely loose at times, tighter at others, and always right on the money! Titles include "It Wasn't Meant To Be", "Anadira", "Cold 40s", "In Our Hands", "What's Her Name", "It Wasn't Meant To Be", and "Brooklyn To Brooklin". LP, Vinyl record album

Hammond-heavy funk from Scone City Players – a group led by organist Adam Scone, and featuring work from The Dap-Kings and Menahan Street Band – all of whom do a fantastic job of giving the organ lines some really massive support! There's a raw vibe here that takes us back to some of the earliest work on the Desco label – great production that leaves plenty of grit in the grooves, at a level that makes the organ sound wonderful – never too clean, and set up perfectly for the breaking drums in the rhythms, which also get some great conga support for an added kick! The whole thing's great – mean, gritty instrumentals that bridge the gap between Hammond jazz of the 60s and instrumental funk – with titles that include "1% Crown", "Bliss Machine", "The Slitter", "Heavy Gauge", "Necking", "Blast Furnace", "Jet Cool", "Grinding Wheel", and "Structural Failure".
