It’s doesn’t bring much to the table melodically, but it definitely does bring a naughty funk groove to the dance floor. Hard to not get down to this one.
I liked this song so much I listened to some of Charlie Burg’s other stuff. Sadly, most of it was pretty awful. Hopefully this record is more indicative of where he’s headed because it really has a lot going for it. Out of the gate, it’s groovy but just when you think you know where it’s going, it takes some unconventional left turns. I liked being surprised especially when it’s with wonderful horn arrangements and riffs, great harmonies and background vocals, sophisticated chord progressions and tight, disciplined production. And it has a GREAT ending too. Bravo, Mr. Burg. Please do more of this!
These guys are amazing. And they’re awfully nice to upload an entire concert for your enjoyment. My favorite part is at 12:23 where bassist Joe Dart is featured. Wow… crazy skills. And at 17:50, check out one of the funkiest breaks ever. Love this stuff.
