Colorado may seem an unlikely place for Sazerac and voodoo rhythms, but the
devil-may-care attitude of historic New Orleans is alive and well in the
Rockies. Thanks to Gumbo le Funque, a five-piece jazz-funk/soul outfit from
Denver, the boogalee spirit of the Big Easy has been resurrected at a
higher altitude. Intoxicating melodies, plenty of groove and possessed by
the tradition of the second line, their new album #Power Love Freedom is
what Jamsphere Magazine calls "a masterful blend of funk and contemporary
jazz." And Coloradans have no problem dancing at the fais-dodos.
