FunkJazzSoul Album of the year!! Sept. 22 2005
By Daddy-o - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There is no category for this music. It drips with soul, it grooves like a mofo with funky drums and bass and has some nice horn lines that provide the jazzy melodies. I have been spinning this daily for weeks- it's all about the vibe baby and this music provides the perfect vibe for whatever your doin'. I dug this band from the first time I heard "Easy Access part 1 & 2" from Soul Fire records. I love this stuff.......LOVE IT!! Search the world for Desco, Soul Fire, Daptone & now Truth & Soul records- it's all goodies for the ears, heart & soul!

expertly crafted album Jan. 13 2006
By Keri B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is the instrumental funk that drove hip hop from its roots to the mainstream. While none of this is old music, its a freshly grown project spawned from the roots of hip hop. It is funk-jazz fusion genius. The stuff that will get people to lay aside their "chillout" albums and get switched on to some sparkling sounds of artist mayhem. It's not just live intruments that makes this better than downtempo electronic music, there's a breath of life in this album. Its sound, its beats, its melodies... they are art, they are a long walk by the ocean, they are an adventure, a drink of scotch, a memory of a girl, a paycheck, a piece of pottery with your hands curled around all soft and wet, a dream that has come to life, a puzzle that looks back at you and winks.

Every Hero Needs Theme Music... Feb. 14 2008
By Vincent L. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
...and every sidekick needs chill out music. If that sidekick is in a 70's black genre film, then this is the music for you. It has an old school soul-jazz feel, but with a new school hip-hop vibe.

#1,5,10 and 11 are my favorites.

So if you like your soul/funk/jazz/hip-hop lyric free then you can do no better than this. It's just that simple. Word!
Funk/Soul/Afrobeat all in one! Dec 17 2014
By Geoff R. Widmier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great album. There are no weak tracks!

El Michels Affair combines soul, R&B, funk, afrobeat, etc., to create an original sound. I'd compare them to Budos Band, but they have a different feel. I think the version being sold her is the re-issue that came out a few weeks ago. The original album was great, and the new tracks are good--just not as good as the originals. They are mostly remixes or what sound like B-sides. All the same, I think the re-issue is worth buying at the higher price, if only because you can't get the original anymore.

Their other album, the 37th Chamber, is also worth checking out.
way overlooked easygoin funkiness... July 6 2009
By B. Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album is a hidden gem of instrumental jazz funk...although almost all these songs move along at a very relaxed pace, this album is anything but boring...unlike so many other jazzy funk jams, these folks know how to make each song progress and grow within itself, rather than just "treading water" for 4 minutes...it's kind of relaxing and engaging at the same time. While they have established their own style, the songs don't all sound the same...cohesive but varied.
Fantastic marching drum beats layered with dancing sax and horns...not a single bad track here....
