I somehow missed this release from The Du-Rites last month, but happily catching up with it now. For Soundcheck at 6, the two main players – J-Zone and Pablo Martin – are joined by another talented duo for a number of live renditions of the funk outfit’s previous jams, with Bruce Martin and Bill Harvey flexing their instrumentation muscle, on keyboards and bass respectively. Some of my favourite Du-Rites joints get the live treatment, including The Man With The Golden Tooth, Bug Juice and Gamma Ray Funk, all of which were recorded at a NY gig last month. If you’re a fan of their earlier releases, or of funk in general, or just a fan of tight live performances, then this is a must cop. You can find digital downloads of all their releases over on Bandcamp and the current album can be heard below.
