“I like New York because you're kind of forced to smell everybody else's funk. So it keeps you biologically attached to the world around you”
– Jeffrey Wright

And that is the philosophy of this jazz-funk band: everyone is connected by the funk. Standing on the shoulders of giants – such as Cannonball Adderley, Miles Davis, Jimmy Smith, and The Meters – this quartet keeps the music “real” by studying and practicing traditional, groove oriented standards while their improvisation adds a fresh and intimate sound.
