PARAS, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: funk
O’s Notes: No, the name of the band is not misspelled, it’s derived from the word shpilkes – being on the edge! The music is a combination of the full contemporary side of the Jazz Rulerª. It opens with the funky “Pleather” and moves through R&B/Disco, techno, rock and fusion and even some jazzy country. We liked the jazzy, funky stuff best. Guest artists include Jeff Coffin (s), DJ Viper and Tracy Silverman (violin). Centered in Nashville, this ensemble is a popular jam band.
