That IS what I call UNDERGROUND JAZZY SOUND. Don’t listen to samples of this album, it is not aimed at that.
The cumulative effect of listening to this album in its entirety is much the same as seeing the band live: the development of momentum is imperceptible, until you find yourself in the midst of the sharp funk of something like “Ice” and realize how much ground you and the threesome have covered in terms of textures and beats.
