    We all have our proper feeling and sensitivity about Groove. Groove can touch us from one particular instrument, one player, band, etc .... Sometimes one tune seems to be the perfect definition of this word by itself.
    Share one tune (not necessarily your favorite band, or music style, or favorite player) that each time you hear it, you feel the same effect than the first time you heard it: the GROOVE. A tune in which all seems perfectly shaped to move you, all players are in a golden pocket, the pocket of all pockets.
    I'll start with one tune i've discovered and played with a previous band (between 2004 and 2009.. old one ! ) I didn't known the singer, i never looked for the players. But this tune has never left my playlist since and each time it's starting, i feel my shoulders move. Guitar bass and drums are like one instrument, like one heart beating. A perfect groove. And needless to say we never been able to make it groove like that :D

    I can see this thread drowning in booty shaking funk. That's why I'm starting to cast oddballs early.

    First one a little hectic for some, but there is serious groove. A late work by musical genius and electronic pioneer Jean Jaques Perrey, featured on the 2000 double LP "At Home With The Groovebox":

    Having grown up on '70s soul/R&B/funk, there are so many to choose from, but this one will do. "Talkin' Loud and Sayin' Nothing" - James Brown:

    I used to be a big fan - had a friend that was OBSESSED with these guys, saw them a bunch of times. Haven't heard about them in years, and funny enough, one of their songs popped up on my playlist the other day. Must be a glitch in the matrix ...
