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.
