Groove Is King
Not yet reviewed.
Funk and jazz band Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) release their sophomore studio album 'Groove Is King,' an aural kaleidoscope that mashes up funk, rock, dance, electronica, jazz and R&B into 14 original tracks and 2 covers full of space, texture, and virtuoso musicianship.
Included is a bonus DVD with over 50 minutes of in-studio footage.
Powered by a lineup of world-renowned players, the group came together for the sheer fun of making music—and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves, they are: album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), and Mike Merritt (bass).
'Groove Is King' was recorded at Tal Bergman Studios in Los Angeles, California. Unlike RCFP's debut album We Want Groove (2013), which tipped its hat to Miles Davis' classic 1982 live instrumental LP 'We Want Miles,' 'Groove Is King' pulls away from the jazz-funk sounds of the first album into a modern sound, with focused compositions and arrangements and a slick production.
"This time around, the concept was less jazz and more modern dance with layered grooves. The rhythm section laid the foundation and then we'd add in strings, synths and an incredible horn section, all while keeping it funky," says DeJesus.
