Album Notes
JB & The FUNKYARD GANG cook up a Funky Jazz/R&B mix of Fatback Drums, Bass, Hammond Organ, and twin Guitar / Saxophone melodies. These guys are all masters of the funk and veteran session players led by Jon Belcher, the soundtrack drummer from Fat Albert's original Junkyard Band. Their new CD includes the singles, FATFOOT and the title tune TOAD'S RIDE.

Along with Jon's fatback drums, the music features session great Gary Herbig on Saxophones. Gary's playing can be heard on albums by Herbie Hancock, Toto, George Benson, Larry Carlton, the Yellowjackets, and TV show's "The Simpsons" and "7th Heaven".

I wanted more!
The play between percussion and sax was fantastic. I listened to it over and over. It's one of the best works for percussion I have heard in years. Belcher is a master,and this CD really shows his range and style. The sax work was great, no more than great, and if this CD gets any air time it will sell itself!!!

Groove to "Toad's Ride" for a funky experience that stimulates all your senses
This CD is rockin'! I find myself listening to it to get my groove started in the morning, and before I know it, I am bobbing to the funyard beat, tapping my feet, scatting vocal riffs on top of the melody line, and drumming my fingers to the heavy beat of this incredible ensemble performance headed by an outstanding drum line. Give it a listen, and you'll be swaying to the groove all day!

Retro-funk madness mixed with modern jazz
Toad's Ride brings brings you on a journey from dirty back alley funk to the polish of modern society. It's always nice to hear a group of virtuostic musicians get together and groove so hard! If you are at all into funky jazz, you won't be disappointed with this recording.
