Hey Jim I just got a couple of Liquid Souls albums and they're great so thanks for the recomendation. I'm a huge fan of Groove Collective and these guys bring sometihng new and kickass to the equation. I sense that these CD's wont be leaving my CD player for a while. Some CD's that you might want to check out are the first 2 albums by an Aussie band called Skunkhour (Self Titled and Feed). They're kinda like an aussie take on 70's funk (good bass player) with some australian accented rap vocals. Check it out. Anyway thanks for the heads up, cheers and keep grooving. Ben PS Any other good (ie not smooth Jazz) acid jazz recomendations.
