SLIPSTREAM - Cruisin' (1987)

Reamusic, RML(V)2014
Producer: Keith Hutchinson
Engineer: Scotty Scott

Smooth jazz meets synth-funk for this innovative take on the bubblegum sound. Unfortunately the instrumental sax groove hasn't aged so well - it's cheesy and dated, but still boasts some super funky basslines and stinging synth riffs, derivate of American jazz funk (like The Crusaders, or early Jonathan Butler) with limited local influences on 'TJ'.
