WILL SES­SIONS Deluxe Ses­sions Sounds

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - MUSIC REVIEWS - JIM CAR­ROLL

Will Ses­sions are the hard­est-work­ing funk sol­diers in Detroit, an en­sem­ble who have pre­vi­ously pro­vided the raw bal­last for acts such as Mayer Hawthorne, Danny Brown, Elzhi, Slum Vil­lage and many more to look and sound good. The col­lec­tive have the chops and crafts­man­ship to turn tracks in­side-out and up­side-down, qual­i­ties that abound on this col­lec­tion of pre­vi­ously re­leased funk sin­gles. There are guest turns from the great Amp Fid­dler Al­lan Barnes, Rickey Cal­loway and Coco, but it’s the eight-strong band who en­sure ev­ery track be­comes one heck of a groove.

Shake It Up, Shake It Down is clas­sic old-school deep funk,

Cherry Juice shakes and rat­tles and Run, Don’t Walk Away packs a punch. On this show­ing, quite a few more artists may con­sider head­ing to Detroit. face­book.com/willses­sions­band
