Specialists/collaborators reviews

Rokukai
The Greyboy AllStars debut album, West Coast Boogaloo, is a fresh reinvention of an old jazz theme - chill grooves fortified with killer musicianship make for great listening. in 2016, these guys are well known. In 1995, it was the presence of Fred Wesley of James Brown fame that lent name credibility to this project. It still went unnoticed, but is a terrific addition to those who like their jazz straight with a smooth chaser. "Tenor Man" would become saxman Karl Denson's signature song. These guys have become legends on the jam band circuit. The more jazz less funk formula works for them. This album should interest all collectors from the Sonny Stitt/Groove Holmes/Rusty Bryant Prestige Records era of the '60's and '70's. Wesley is in top form and his funky jazz chops blend well with the young musicians from California.
