4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

An unusual project from Chico Mann – one first conceived when he moved to LA, and had the desire to start an Afro Funk band – music penned for that idea, but performed here with the stripped-down style of some of Chico's other work! You can definitely hear how the tunes might sound with fuller horns in a larger lineup – but the instrumentation here is a lot leaner – beats, keyboards, guitar riffs, and some likely samples – all served up with plenty of grit, and a sound that really takes us back to the vibe we loved in the earliest records we heard from Chico Mann!
