T BIRD & THE BREAKS: The Piano Joint – 2010 – Single review

Rating: ★★★★★

The band with more members than there are people in the state of Texas continues an ongoing campaign to deliver one slice of funk every month. It’s a turnaround time which, on the evidence of these drops, doesn’t seem to be causing them any creative problems at all. Indeed – this is the best one yet. Lest the name itself fail to provide a sizeable hint as to what you’re likely to hear, let me describe The Piano Joint simply as a gospel-tinged groove that provides a pleasing counterpoint to singer Tim Crane’s raspy vocals over a rather sizeable breakbeat that wishes it was around 20 years ago so that Eric B could have sampled it. Oh yeah – and it’s got a piano on it. If that isn’t enough for you – and god knows it should be – you’ve got B side Mr Rockwell which recalls early G Love & Special Sauce only with more groove. Have that!

    You can buy the digital release (both tracks) in all its 320 kbps glory for 60 cents, or more if you feel so inclined.

    Although this kind of music obviously needs to be owned and played from a nice petite slab of black vinyl, the only way to ‘own’ it at this moment seems to be a digital purchase.

    Go support the artists!!
