about

“The very bridge between the forefathers – Clinton, Stone, Hancock – and something like D’Angelo”
-Straight No Chaser

We rejoin our heroes as they continue on an instrumental journey of monumental proportions. The mythic source of love and compassion, Vaginus, serves as the crossroads for funk minded musicians young and old to meet and merge. The result is an exploration of sonic boundaries, pushing the envelope of Funk, Hip-Hop, Fusion, Jazz, Rock, and Classical. Conductor Aja West constructed this album entirely in The Netherlands on the island of Vlieland. Three great horn players, Skerik, Steve Moore, and Craig Flory, all members of the Syncopated Taint Septet are featured. Randy Guss of Toad the Wet Sprocket lays down some riotous funk drums. Dolemite bandleader Alex Veley plays rhodes piano like a Dolemite band leader should. Many other extraordinary players from Seattle, Los Angeles, and The Netherlands unite to create this passion stirring music.
