Anatomy of Groove


This swinging instrumental jazz funk record, which blends vintage New York brass and smoky jazz with the deep bass, heavy drums and 70s jazz funk organs of Brazil to create big textures and drip realism into these funky, cinematic nuggets. Recorded during winter 1999 in a basement in Brooklyn, New York, Leo Gandelman's idea was to put together a group of his finest musician friends and over solid Brazilian grooves create original music with lots of swing. Features Brazil's Azymuth and the special guest here, Reuben Wilson "the Godfather of jazz funk".
