Part social experiment, part musical experience; We've tried democracy, communism, capitalism, dorian, chromatic, mescalydian, starvation diets, sleep depravation, meditation, mediation, co-op, cooped up, disco-ambient-futura-trance-jungle-drum and bass-trip hop-hip-acid-transistor-funk-rock-psychedelic-silicon-hard bop-big beat-tube-electronic-live-dub-salsa-mambo combo with a twist... and you know, I think it might be the next big thing!
Groove Collective is a contemporary jazz group. In 2007 they were nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year for the release People People Music Music on the Savoy Jazz label. Groove Collective’s musical style reflects the wide-ranging backgrounds and interests of its individual members. Commenting on the group’s 1996 release, We the People, critic Michael Casey referred to the numerous influences at work in Groove Collective’s sound, specifically the presence of Afro-pop, Latin jazz, hip-hop, and traditional jazz stylings. This mix is born of the members’ varying influences, including bebop, funk, old-school hip-hop and classic soul.
