Dancers Only” says it all from a band formed by Txefo K-billy (drums), Xixo
Yantani (percussion), Guru Teje (bass), Rambo “The street King” (guitar),
Raimund Dietzen (keyboards), Mihail Goldfingers (sax, flute) y Art LaRock
(trombone) developing a very unique style through this twelve songs in wich the
groove takes possesion right from the beginning on “Tout va Bien” or “For Dancers Only” followed by “Simon is
Back” an early seventies Funk music alusion.
“Marvin’s Night” a Motown reminiscent
and a tribute to the long missed Marvin Gaye “4, 3, 2,1” half way between Latin
sounds due to percussion and Stax style chorus. “Doin´ Slowly” relaxes the
atmosphere thanks to Mihail Goldfingers on flute and Xixo Yantani´s percussion.
Back to the dance floor on “Edición
Especial” and “LP Fiction”. Art LaRock´s trombone takes control along with
Raimund Dietzen on Keyboads on “Fostex Lady” taking us
dancing right to “Run and Gun”
Rhodes organ brings us the very only female sung track the half jazz-half soft
soul“Susu Pétalos”. Black Cream” puts the record to an end gliding across the
Dancers Only” is a record full of
influences, right from Curtis Mayfield, Marvin Gaye or The Jb´s to Grant Green,
Lou Donaldson o Lonnie Smith. A perfectly designed work acccomplished by this
band from Bilbao built up with the accurate groove and wisdom who have mixed
endless afro american influences along the years just to establish a very own style without losing sight. “For
Dancers Only” is a record made from The Cherry Boppers experience with the clear
aim to be danced.
