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.
