156 CHARLY ANTOLINI SOUL
BEAT MPS(GER) 60.00
What we have here are two sides of heavy duty, driving,
dancefloor jazz. While I'm the first to admit that drummer Antolini

but flowing along at a nice uptempo pace underpinned by tight bass and
crisp percussion, topped with flowing fender and memorable horns. Everyone
gets a workout, cool jazzy solos punctuated by the horns in the chorus,
the track builds and builds - the percussion breakdown, when it comes,
