Wow... indeed. Not so much for Maceo because he's played the same thing out of his horn that he has for the past  40 years...what is impressive are Mike Abene's arrangements and Dennis Chamber's drumming. They make this recording IMO. He definitely has the right cat for the funk playing drums but Dennis also is a great jazz player. He grew up with the organ trios out of Baltimore and then to the influential and innovative funk ensemble Parliament/Funkadelic. One of the most versatile drummers playing today and certainly the funkiest. Certainly worth checking out.
