This is one very cool little album. Great cover, great orchestra, great production, great recording. Beautifully crisp pressing too. The music is a curious mix of tunes 'in the style of' particular musical genres. There are Latin numbers, Glenn Miller style big band swing, Cha cha, blues... you name it. From a funk perspective, the star of the show is the excellent James Brown cover 'Beat The Rock' (aka Lickin' Stick), a very jazzy, tight instrumental funk cut out of the top drawer. Buy for that cut alone - if you can find it...
