xpatofthemind Another fabulous project pours out body-moving grooves, incisive bass lines and smooth horns from the bell of the amazing impresario Jessica Lurie's saxophone. There's a lot to like here, with a strong south-of-the-border influence on the jazz/afrobeat/sum'n-sum'n you would expect from Lurie. Try it, you'll like it!!!! Favorite track: Carlito.
