MODERN GROOVE SYNDICATE: Ms. Popular
Courthouse, 2007

INSTRUMENTAL JAZZ-FUNK – MGS’s third CD is a winner. The grooves are hot, the melodies catchy, the solos clean and confident. These are solid, unassuming, good-time party jams in nice, radio-friendly lengths, so go ahead and funk up your set already.

All tracks fun. Fo’s Picks: 1, 2, 5, 7, 8

1. 3:10 – upbeat, rolling groove; wailing sax solo, noisy break. Wheee!
2. 4:32 – cool strut with dirty keyboards, sing-song melody
3. 3:17 – speedy, happy sound: everybody gets a short solo
4. 4:45 – relaxed down-home soul, sax & keys stay close together
5. 3:31 – fast ‘n’ furious! Squawking keys & rollicking sax burn away…
6. 4:18 – a lazy, countrified blues stroll, everyone takes it easy
7. 5:06 – chunky funk with an attitude; slammin’ beats w/samples
8. 4:02 – even chunkier, with more attitude & rockin’ breaks
9. 5:14 – midtempo walk, relatively simple with cool organ & bass
10. 3:46 – uptempo, churning groove with staccato melody
11. 2:43 – silly quacking tune over merry little groove, nice keyboard solo
