Nick Pride And The Pimptones - Go DeepLegere Recordings
"Go Deep" is the third overall album and second on Legere recordings from Nick Pride & The Pimptones. Their impressive debut displayed a band heavy on instrumentation and capable of bridging the gap between jazz and soul. On this release they've totally focused on funk and soul grooves with impressive results. Beth Macari, who appeared on one track from their previous release "Reduced Phat Shake" has become the full time vocalist on all tracks here and that proves to be a great move. Her sultry vocals make an impact right from the start with "What The Heart Wants". a slow grinding soul tune made to order for a dim light basement party. "Give It To Me" kicks off with a seductive bass groove complemented by funky horns. "Good Day" is a sun drenched feel good tune certain to lift your spirits.Pride, who arranged all ten tracks sought for a deep soul recording and hits the mark.A deeply satisfying record for funk and soul lovers to play again and again.
