    This summer I'm playing in a jazz/funk/fusion group. The group will consist of bass (me), drums, guitar, alto sax, and tenor/soprano sax. We will be doing some Brecker stuff and some Mingus stuff and maybe a few standards. The chicken and teen town are definite possibilities. Can I have some suggestions for what bands or songs would make good material for the group?

    I second the Groove Collective. There's also a version of "Wade in the Water" on Kazaa credited to Kirk Whalum that's VERY funky-jazzy, complete with guitar and bass solos, and a phenomenal sax line throughout.
