This acid jazz outfit from downtown New York City was formed in 1990 by flutist Richard Worth. Groove Collective has had 5 or so albums since then. They're best seen live as their studio albums do not capture their raw live essence.
This particular song is off the out of print "Live and Hard To Find" album. If you can find it I suggest picking it up as it really contains some great material. "The Great Escape" is a wonderful track with keyboard licks that will knock your socks off. Groovy! This track sounds like it easily could have come out in the very early 70's.
They just played this last weekend so it seems as they are still together in some shape or another. Keep an eye on the radar to see if they're coming to your town.
