With that Wurlitzer groove, the horn parts, the deep backbeat, and live drums doing DJ-style breaks and stutters: it's a party, and you're invited. Just pull up and settle down.

He's not literally broke, it's more of a Loki-style devil's-advocate: broke today, rich tomorrow, only this is real, right now. What do I got to do? An impeccable sense of timing puts this whole mix on solid ground, and the bass-playing and groove-making is as good as soul-funk ever gets. Put it on, and get ready to move.
