Instrumentals Right HERE: coldb.us/gjsinstrumentals
Koka Mass Jazz is the solo-project-turned-party from Konstantin Katsarski and a band of musicians. Their sound is that of a drunken funk brigade … fun and full of embellishments. Listeners can expect this talented group's work to cover styles ranging across funky breaks, nu jazz, funk, soul, and even a bit of afro-beat. After a warm reception for their first single "Smile", they continue the party in true, feel-good funk fashion on their new twelve track album Groovy Jam Shoes. Highlights include the limb-liberating cut "Freedom", the fierce percussive workout "Rhythm By Rhythm", a commandingly delivered "Keep The Groove", and the introspective cool down of "You Will Be Done" to finish things off.
