Tony Minvielle – FoldedSpace on / Straight No Chaser

Cool, casual, and convincing just about sums up the sublime sounds produced by funk jazz ensemble King Bee. Their laid back effortless rhythms are backed up by a ‘fire in the belly’ groove that drives the whole thing into the realms of quality music.

Thanks to some accomplished sax and flute from ‘Smoove and Turrells’ Dave Wilde and some inspired vibraphone from Chris Jelly this crew have mastered the art of reconnecting the words soul, jazz and funk and making them a thing of joy.

This alone will sooner, rather than later, take them to much bigger and better things.
