TBG rocks!

Great album. Glad to see their stuff on iTunes. Try to catch them at a club in Detroit -- they are awesome performers.

One of the best organ trios today...

True to their reputation, these cats are fantastic performers. I had a chance to catch them twice at the '03 and '05 Detroit/Montreaux Jazz Fest. Both times were mind blowing, and made me want to explode in a jazz fury. Chris Codish is amazing, but his bassist deserves oodles of credit for his contribution to a complex and highly-skilled laid-down foundation to The Brothers' music. I believe him to be one of the finest and most talented bassists today. I also disagree with iTunes's delegation of "Pop" to this album, because it has much more blues and funk elements to it than anything else. Clamp It Down is far superior to it's follow-up "So Glad You Came", if you are fans of blues and jazz. Their second album has more of a rock feel to it, although "Downtown" is a must-have. All in all, buy the whole album. Tunes I didn't like at first grew on me, and now if I want a LP without much thought or time spent creating a playlist, I groove to Clamp It Down. Catch these boys live, and you will be complete.

No weak spots

This is one of the few albums that I can listen to over and over from beginning to end. You can't isolate the music into a specific style, other than it's all high energy and funky.

They soon developed a musical chemistry that would become complete with Kalamazoo-native Michael Caskey on drums in August of 1999. Almost immediately the trio clicked and starting gigging around the Detroit area as the Brothers Groove. They quickly established themselves as one of the hardest working bands in the...
