The New Mastersounds always sound grittier in a live setting -- and
this album is great proof of that fact! The drums seem harder, the
guitar a bit more edgey, and the Hammond let loose even more than
before -- all flying together on grooves that run a bit longer than
some of the combo's studio sets -- with a bit more funky energy too!
This cooking little date was recorded in San Francisco over the course
of two nights that are nicely distilled down here -- and the core
quartet is joined by some added tenor and sax on three tracks, showing
a whole new dimension of the Mastersounds groove.
