about

Funky Jazz from Scottish guitarist Neil Warden featuring John Burgess on Tenor Sax and Flute.

--------------------------------

Scottish musicians Neil Warden (guitar) and John Burgess (sax & flute) step forward in the tradition of fellow Scots like The Average White Band to flaunt a funky, clearly soulful and jazz-filled sound as Blue Soul Groove on this, their debut release, Turn Back The Time. This is a very satisfyingly solid project of hard hitting, powerful jazz/soul/funk cleverly arranged with lots of smart guitar and sax/flute stylings.

Guitarist/founder Warden is no stranger to the jazz music scene, having spent 25 years with blues/jazz singer Tam White. Deciding to round up some seriously competent help in Burgess (and others who contribute handsomely here but may or may not be permanent members), Warden appears to be offering up something quite promising.

While Warden's guitar is very prominent here, there is an ongoing smooth party underway between him and Burges throughout the album. I don't feel that anyone seizes the "lead" as such here. Rather, they work together in such a magically cohesive and co-dependent manner that it just makes the whole production one of superior taste and quality (a real credit to founder Warden). A case in point would be the high-stepping "Out On the Groove," and I only select that track as a random example. I could have chosen any number of them to make my point. However, now that I think about it, this one is a bit different in that it has that "wired up" intense Down-to-the-Bone edge to it.
