Seductivity – Times 4

Seductivity - Times 4 Artist: Times 4
Album: Seductivity
Release Date: April 12, 2005
Duration: 01:04:38
Genre: Jazz
Recording Location: Shattuck Down Low, Berkeley, CA; Uncle Funker’s Garage

Times 4 is an excellent and tight funk/jazz group. Both tenor saxophonist Lincoln Adler and keyboardist Greg Sankovich are expert at setting danceable grooves and, although Adler’s originals are generally pretty basic, the music develops well and holds onto one’s attention. The bass-drums team of Kevin Lofton and Maurice Miles is tight and the quartet often thinks as one. The live group improvisation “Down Low” is a solid and coherent change of pace. Seductivity succeeds as both funky dance music and a fine example of the funkier side of jazz.
