Product Description

Deluxe CD/DVD edition. 2013 album from the funky supergroup. Last year, a group of guys got together at The Baked Potato in Studio City, California to play some Jazz and Funk. It was so much fun that the guys - guitarist Joe Bonamassa, drummer Tal Bergman (Billy Idol, Joe Bonamassa, LL Cool J, Rod Stewart), bassist Mike Merritt (The Basic Cable Band on Conan), guitarist Ron DeJesus (Planet Funk, Groove vol 1), and keyboardist Renato Neto (Prince) - decided to gather in the studio to make an instrumental record, bringing in sounds from Jazz, Funk and Rock that captures the vibe of the early 70s and 80s, and bringing it into the modern age. From that, Rock Candy Funk Party was born. RCFP is powered by a lineup of world-class players collaborating for the sheer joy of making music, and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves.

I read...

"Rock Candy Funk Party is the brainchild of Bonamassa's drummer Tal Bergman and guitarist Ron DeJesus - the two issued an album in 2007 called Grooove Vol.1 - who began a series of jams at Hollywood's famed jazz hotspot, The Baked Potato. Bassist Mike Merritt and keyboardist Renato Neto soon joined in, and finally Bonamassa decided to give it a go. The quintet clicked, and after a few more appearances they took their act into the studio."

Think of a place the size of a large garage but the garage band is made up of some of the best musicians in the world. It's downright obscene how lucky some people can be to luck into a venue like that. I'm envious.

This is one fantastic collaboration of musicians consisting of Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merrit (bass), Renato Neto (Keys) and Tal Bergman (drums and producer).

This is 70's/80's improvisational funk groove with a generous smattering of fusion jazz , which is covered with a heaping helping layer of progressive rock. Just like Jeff Beck dishes out on a regular basis. The guys push the boundaries on this one with an endless driving bass and drum line characteristic of funk music.

"Featuring nine tracks, eight originals and one cover, the album is full of space and texture, mashed up funk, jazz, rock and virtuoso musicianship. A bonus DVD is also included that features a making-of featurette, two in-the-studio featurettes and the official "Octopus-e" music video."

I hear a Herbie Hancock/Miles Davis influence but with the Band's own spin on every song, making them their own.

Excellent sound production and technically great performances. While I enjoy this release, I feel the project lacks both dynamics in the arrangements and imagination in its composition. Not that the compositions are bad - it's that they don't live up to the production or the stellar abilities of the individual players. That said, the compostitions' derivative nature is more a purposeful nod to fusion heros like Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, etc. than anything else - and to the project's credit, all in the name of fun. The best examples are found in the title track and in the spacey mood of "The Best Ten Minutes of Your Life". Taken at face value, it's an unapologetic retro fusion homage ...and it certainly grooves.

Awesome beat! A great and interesting departure for Joe Bonamassa. I bought this to hear a different side of Joe. All the musicianship is great. Great driving music or to play at a party.
