Review Text With all its instant funk attack and dynamic intensity, for the first few minutes of RELEASE THE GREASE LIVE you could be forgiven for thinking you were listening to a reconstituted Average White Band. If this East Coast outfit doesn't quite have the laid-back funk swing of its influences the JBs and Tower Of Power, it more than makes up for it in enthusiasm and pure energy. Tracks such as "Sweet 'Tater Pie" and "Devil's Harvest" build on a percolating funk foundation, while the soul-jazz inflections of "Homo Lingo" go straight to the heart and hips of the matter with no messing. Deep Banana Blackout specialize in the slow build in cuts such as "Fashion" and the greasy Meters-influenced "Mama's Boy, " while if the equally New Orleans influenced "Pass It Down" doesn't find patrons slipping and sliding to its second line funk they should be checking their pulses for signs of life.
