ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I suppose this should technically be considered an EP, but don't let its 5 track format dissuade you from giving this funk fusion group a sporting chance. This album is packed so full of grooves it's bursting at the seams (and, in the interest of full disclosure, the tracks all boast sufficiently beefy running times). As their name somewhat implies, there are six players in this group. Alto sax and trumpet lead the way, floating over the top of the tightly knit grooves provided by the bass and drums. This leaves the guitar and keys free to tastefully interject when the time is ripe, and they make the most of it. Each of the players is given ample time to showcase their solo skills as well (as wonderfully exemplified by the drum work on "View From San Pedro"), and they each pull it off with a calculated sensibility. Overall, the most impressive element here may be the fact that this was recorded live in the studio. It's great to hear the musicians fall into a groove and ride it all the way out, feeding off one another and progressively building the songs together.

No U didn't
Man, Oh man! did you guys ever hit the mark. This is SLAMMIN'! Do you hear and feel what I'm saying to you. This project has all of the ingredients needed for the perfect meal of musical madness. Only one ingredient missing here folks. It's called vinyl. The fact that it wasn't recorded in the days of vinyl is probably a blessing for most true music lovers. For I truly feel that had this project been recorded on wax and played on a half decent stereo system, we'd all most likely be out of a job for not showing up to work. If one were to play this while getting dressed for work, they would never make it out the door. It's that damn GOOD.

There are many bands out there that are attempting to do what situation six has actually done-with only 5 songs might I add- and that's fuse several styles into one that's completely there own. Rock, funk, fusion, latin, new age and jazz makes the hottest EP-or album for that matter- that I've heard in a long time. The songs are smoking, the solos are hot and the grooves blaze and inferno that will keep my ipod burning for quite some time. I can't wait to here more from you!!!!
