This collection of swampy funk is deep in the pocket, right where it should be. The grooves are thick, the vocals are sparse and always add texture to the interplay between the musicians, and the vibes never get bogged down. For a four piece, they crank out a surprisingly full sound, complimenting the bass and drums with organ, electric piano, saxophone, and some slick percussion. The lyrics and vocals are pure party soul, designed to get you in tune with the vibe and flow of the music. Songs like "Booty Movin'" give you even more than what you might expect: A tight drum beat, accented with driving organ and guitar that sandwich the listener right in the middle of some wild vocals and a full on groove that splits open for a fantastic sax solo. The Gumbo Brothers say they're "going to hit you with some ass-shakin' funk!" They got that right. Prepare yourself.
