«This disc (We came to play) gives shivers from the first listen. While highlighting what made the reputation of this legendary formation, that is, a very particular concentration of funk and soul seventies, the musicians are also in tune with their time by including good rap vibrations in some of their tracks. The blues and groove are also present for the greatest pleasure of our ears, as is a fabulous instrumental version of the James Brown standard, »
