“They just don’t make grooves like these anymore. The hard-hitting funk of George Clinton, those New Orleans second-line rhythms of The Meters, that earthy, jazzy, country shuffle of Little Feat. Even the get-off-your-butt-and-move early-’90s groove laid down by the Spin Doctors.

It felt like it was as if Little Feat and The Meters got together and started jamming.”“It really is a blessing,” Sanchez says of playing with his brother and longtime friend."”
