Tight funky jazz from vocalist Ben Sidran still very much in his best early mode, and playing with a really raw sound overall! Ben's vocals are in that down-home Mose Allison mode, but the real charm is the music which features funky drums by Clyde Stubblefield, the man responsible for the legendary break on James Brown's "Funky Drummer" plus great playing by Chicago talents Sonny Seals on tenor, Bunky Green on alto, and Phil Upchurch on bass. Ben's piano is pretty great too especially on the funky tracks as it comes across with a hard left side sort of sound that really makes for a wonderful groove! Key titles include "Snatch", "The Funky Elephant", "The Foolkiller", "Fat Jam", and "Hey Hey Baby" which has a great funky break!
