O’s Notes: This is fresh, New Orleans, funky R&B, along the lines of the Neville Brothers. There’s punchy deep bass linked with the pop of the bass drum, the B3, harmonized bluesy vocals, and that sweet soul feelin’. Among the best songs are “Sometimes I Wonder”, “Cheating On You”, “More Hipper” and “Fanning The Flames”. Jon and The Absolute Monster Gentlemen have a hit!
