I realize Mr. Mayer included the tune “Fuck You” (or “Forget You” for you pop radio listeners out there) in his Best of 2010, but I was a little late to the party, as usual, and just got a copy of The Lady Killer a couple of weeks ago. I have to say I wasn’t expecting much, but was really blown away. I haven’t heard a soul record this good since early Maxwell. Mr. Green’s vocals are pristine and the rhythm section is tighter than…well, how about I spare you imagery there and just say they’re tight. I usually don’t delve into this musical genre these days thinking that there are no more Sam Cookes or Marvin Gayes on the scene anymore. Consider me corrected.
Top tracks include the aforementioned tune as well as the immensely catchy “Cry Baby”, “Bodies” which features some nice drumming, and “Fool for You.” The intro and outro them plays on James Bond movies and everything else in between will have you shaking and grooving enough to make the Funk Brothers proud.
