Groove 8 / Press

"Celebrating its 5th anniversary this unit exhibits stellar musicianship making soundtrack ready compositions that groove on funk and laid back jazz and feel almost effortless. If only Quentin Tarantino would tap them for his next project. "

“Creative Loafing Charlotte Groove 8 plays soul jazz funk, or funky soul jazz, if you prefer. Familiar touchstones abound, including 1960s' Blue Note artists like Lou Donaldson and late-era Lee Morgan, the big combo jazz of Charles Mingus and Tito Puente, Curtis Mayfield wah-wah guitar, and '70s funk acts like Tower of Power and Parliament."”
