With its reboot of classic ’70s /‘80s jazz-funk, Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) delivers a sound that’s as celebratory as the name suggests. The group is powered by a lineup of world renowned players who came together for the sheer fun of making music—and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves. With collective credits including Joe Zawinul, Hugh Masekela, Prince, Ruth Brown, Chaka Khan, Simples Minds, Billy Idol, Tito Puente, Bruce Springsteen, Rod Stewart, Levon Helm, Conan O’Brien, Sheila E. and many more, they are: album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (bass) and Renato Neto (keys).

RCFP’s first album—due out in January 2013 on Bonamassa’s label, J&R Adventures—is We Want Groove. That demand is more than met with nine original tracks—full of space and texture—that mash up funk, jazz, and rock with virtuoso musicianship. While the album is instrumental, the interplay between RCFP’s members is

ROCK CANDY FUNK PARTY We Want Groove

The name of the group and the name of the album speak for themselves. Sinewy blues/rock guitar lines blend with funky keys, bass, and drums to excite the listener on what surely is jazz's best party record of 2013. Part of the charm is that until this release nobody would have thought of Joe Bonamassa as a jazz musician, but his presence puts this album over the top in terms of virtuosity. This would have been a fine release in 1974, but top notch recording techniques and old school spirit make this a must listen for all fans of groove.

Rock Candy Funk Party's second long player, Groove is King, surely lives up to it's title. Rock, blues, funky R&B mix with bits of electronica to make a whole that's unmistakably jazz. Short songs mesh with extended pieces seamlessly to create a record that rewards repeated concentration while also serving as a terrific party record. Master guitarist Joe Bonamossa is the most well known musician among this collective, however they are all extremely accomplished and, following the heels of their 2013 debut and 2014 double disc live set, continue to add a punctuation mark to the funky rock and roll jazz fusion pantheon. If you haven't heard these guys, you're missing out.
