Hey people - we're back, following on from "(Don't Be) Afraid To Groove" with more of our taste: instrumental jewels from the souljazz bag, takes on soul classics, funky bombs, and greasy blues. This time with some VERY special guests; singers Dietra Farr from Chicago and Tad Robinson from NYC, alone AND together; the explosive guitar of Kirk Fletcher, the sublime horns of Gordon "Sax" Beadle and Eric Bloom, fatback drums from Silvio Berger, finesse from Lukas Kn÷fler, and percussion 'ear candy' from Luis Ribeiro. The sounds are sweet and tuff, but always Soulful!

On DON'T BE AFRAID TO GROOVE, Austrian Hammond B3 organ player Raphael Wressnig and American guitarist Alex Schultz join forces for a simmering, soul-jazz-influenced set. Highlights include a buoyant instrumental take on Marvin Gaye's "What's ... Full DescriptionGoing On" and "Jimmy McGroove," a fitting tribute to organ-playing jazz greats Jimmy Smith, Jimmy McGriff, Brother Jack McDuff, and Richard "Groove" Holmes.
