Johnny Hammond - Gears (Jazz/Funk)

1. Tell Me What To Do 
2. Los Conquistadores Chocolates 
3. Lost On 23rd Street 
4. Fantasy 
5. Shifting Gears 
6. Can't We Smile 

 Johnny Hammond Smith works the keyboard like there's no tomorrow, pulling off funky licks left and right. The tight band keep up the pace, especially the rhythm section on the title track, Shifting Gears. I dare you to listen to this and not have the urge to dance. The wonderful MIzell brothers who did great things with Donald Byrd are here in their usual musician/producer roles. This is a highly influential record, and fans of modern acid jazz groups like the Brand New Heavies will love this and see the influences. You need this CD if you love funk, dance, soul, jazz or a good time
