This six-song EP kicks off with "Get on Down," a funky jam reminiscent of P-Funk and Maceo Parker. It features some thumping bass, funky guitar and some sweet saxophone. If this song doesn't get you groovin', I don't know what will. Put the title track in that category also.
The second track has a good funky vibe also, although the song overall kind of feels like a cross between The BellRays and classic ska a la Toots and The Maytals. The guitar in Calunga and Maraca Fu also reminds me of The BellRays, but these two tunes have a more world music sound.
Delta Nove recently won some Orange County Music Awards as Best Live Act and Best Jam Band. It's pretty easy to see why. They get a pretty good groove on. The only problem with this disc is that it's way too short, only twenty-three minutes. So, just when you are in full groove mode, the disc is done. Still, these guys show a lot of talent and the ability to meld several genres into their sound. It may be difficult to place them into a category, but it sure is easy to listen to them.
