This cross-generational, multicultural Memphis based group celebrates its thirtieth anniversary with this release, so that the youngest members were not even born when the band began, though 87 year old saxman Dr. Herman Green already had many years of experience of working with the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, BB King and Bob Weir. This set runs the whole range of Memphis music from soul and funk to rock, pop and blues. Occasionally there are tinges of New Orleans funk maestros The Meters, classic soul, sixties and seventies pop-rock – take a listen to ‘Dinja Babe’, which appropriately enough features drums and backing vocals by Jody Stephens of cult rock band Big Star. There is a fine cover of The Band’s ‘The Shape I’m In’ mixed in with plenty of big brassy riffing and slinky rhythms behind lead singer Richard Cushing, plus several fine if lengthy instrumentals. ‘Believe’ is a mellow, jazzy duet between Richard and Stephani McCoy, and the final number begins in psychedelic mode with Indian influences to follow a very individual path. Certainly a distinctive release.
