This is the second full album from the Brooklyn-based retro jazz-rock act. Aside from the prelude of sound bites discussing Barack Obama's pot-smoking habits preceding "Choom Gang," it's an all-instrumental affair. The nine-piece band includes the novel addition of oboe to its trombone/alto sax horn section. Oboist Dave Kadden also adds some nice flute flourishes to "Ticket to Cabo" (dedicated to band favorite Sammy Hagar) and "Klip Winger." Echoes of War; Average White Band; and Blood, Sweat & Tears permeate the band's sound, the prime objective being to get the listener dancing to their funky workouts. 

Poll

A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
