"Three" musicians, is just a number to these guys, because they truly sound like several on any given song! Their music is a combination of funky, groovy fusion, with a twist of philanthropic and eclectic global unity. Some bands are so far out, that only musical purists can enjoy them...but not these guys. Bassist Ronnie Sanchez lays down lines that Boosty Collins and Jaco Pastorious could easily connect with. The drum grooves by brother Manny Sanchez are reminiscent of Mitch Mitchell and Louis Bellson in their peak. Guitarist Sarven Manguiat cooks up intricate rhythms and solos that remind me of great albums like Santana's "Abraxas", or "Shakti", with John McLaughlin. The best way for me to put it is this: What the band RUSH did for Rock Music History, is what Groove Session is doing for Jam Bands!
