Album Notes
Kusz swings into a funky groove and soars on his alto, surrounded by jangling guitar and powerful synth energy on the opening track “Sexy Sax MF”. He eases into a playful discofied thump groove on the cool yet spirited “Velvet Love Girl”, and then invites us inside of his romantic ballad style on the whimsical and soulful “When We First Met.” A symphonic intro draws Kusz into the mid-tempo emotional funk ballad “Nice & Slow”, and he achieves a “Perfect Score” with a moody slow jam where the deep alto melody is complemented by trippy echoing synth sounds. Kusz’s balladry and artful use of horn texturing reaches a high emotional point on the gently percussive “Life” (which starts with crackles and pops, like an old LP) before the infectious, Daft Punkish “Beatnik Boogie” dances and jangles with exotic joy and old school funk grooves. The saxophonist then trips into the 80s for a happy synth driven “Sax Voyage 2”, featuring a hypnotic keyboard harmony under Kusz’s mid tempo sax melody.

True to its title, “Incredible” sets the moody with a low toned mid tempo ballad that eases over a gentle synthesizer hypnosis and cool thumping beat. Starting with David Filey’s elegant acoustic guitar intro, “Makin’ You Hot” (produced by Victor Reynolds) is a pure old school liquid soul caress around a punchy lead sax melody. After bouncing his jamming “Sexy.Funk 2” off a fiery electric guitar and thick bass pocket, Kusz pays homage to his first album with the title of “Still Lost In The Groove”, which offers a swirl of liquid funk energy, old school trippy atmospheres and a buoyant textured lead sax line. The set wraps with a first class funk jam, texturing a dreamy, swirling synth wash, thick bass and Kusz’s whimsical sax before exploding into a danceable funk rocker that includes a wild jazzy keyboard solo. Of all others, this is where the Sanborn and Prince influences merge together in wild ecstasy.
