    The Menahan Street Band (named for the Brooklyn street where they recorded) is something of a New York funk/soul-scene supergroup, featuring members of Sharon Jones's Dap-Kings, Antibalas, and the Budos Band. The breezy-but-groovy sound on their debut album mixes the kind of soul-jazz, R&B, and Afro-funk influences you'd expect, considering the members' histories, but the evocative feel of their instrumental compositions gives the MSB an identity all their own.

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he emphasis is on authenticity, paying tribute without pastiching, educating without preaching....They transplant atmospheric reggae-flecked funk to Isaac Hayes' mean streets of Harlem, then add mesmeric deep jazz."
    Clash (magazine) (p.98) - "[A] flourishing instrumental jazz and funk record that could easily be the soundtrack to any Tarantino gangster-centric movie. Full of warm and breezy tones..."
    Record Collector (magazine) (p.100) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] mesmeric instrumental soundtrack for both the mind and the feet."
    The Fader (magazine) (p.154) - "MAKE THE ROAD BY WALKING is filled with untouched palettes waiting to be sampled..."
