Down To The Bone - Cellar Funk


Down To The Bone's groove gets harder, funkier, and juicier on their Narada Jazz debut, CELLAR FUNK.
Hailed as kings of the U.K. groove jazz, the ensemble first rocked the U.S. charts in 1996 with the smash hit, FROM MANHATTEN TO STATEN. Down To The Bone's powerful sound revolutionized the smooth jazz genre, giving the "easy listening" format a fresh jolt of dance, soul, and funk.

Down To The Bone's highly-talented live core band is made up of artists who previously made a name for themselves as session musicians for some of the most popular jazz and funk bands today. Paul 'Shilts' Weimer was in the horn section for the Brand New Heavies, and Tony Remy (guitar) has toured with Lonnie Liston Smith and Craig David. Neil Angilley (keyboards), Julian Crampton (bass for Incognito), and Adrian Revell (sax who has toured with Jamiroqui), are all important in creating the signature sound. Down To The Boneýs mastermind Stuart Wade believes when these fine musicians take the stage for a live performance, they are the focus: "When these guys go out as Down To The Bone they are, at last, the stars.

What is Acid Jazz?

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
