You've heard the hook before - the staccato eighth notes, the warm horn swells, the cry of "speech." It's the opening to Rolling Stone's number one song of 2007, Jay-Z's "Roc Boys (And The Winner Is)". But those trumpets aren't coming from some obscure 70s soul sample but rather from the 45 of "Make the Road by Walking" by Brooklyn's own MENAHAN STREET BAND, a collaboration of musicians from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, El Michels Affair, Antibalas and the Budos Band, brought together by musician/producer Thomas Brenneck (Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, and Budos Band) to record hits in the bedroom of his Menahan St. apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. With influences reaching beyond the funk/soul/afrobeat architecture of their other projects into the more ethereal realms of Curtis Mayfield and Mulatu Astatke, the Menahan Street Band creates a unique new instrumental soul sound that is as raw as it is lush and their debut LP, "Make the Road by Walking" is bright and energetic, sonorous and warm, effortlessly enveloping itself in the Daptone funk Brenneck has helped to make flourish but also stretching itself out amiably into new territories. The tour edition comes with a bonus exclusive CDEP limited to 500 copies only.
