Arghh! For every brilliant modern funk/soul release (see Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band) there is always a slew of poor, unimaginative, second rate, impressionist stuff like this.The problem is with these kind of releases is that they are always well-intentioned. The musicianship and vocals are always of a good standard, but it’s just the ideas; the understanding of the genre; the desire to simply re-create, rather than create that means so many records like this just sound thin, weak, tepid and uninspired.
