'Seattle multi-instrumentalist/producer Cheebacabra's new album, Pass the Information, packs a lot of pimp-struttin', silken-shafted funk into it's 17 tracks. It sounds as if a large crew of super-slick veteran musos not unlike those who played on '70s CTI Records sessions gathered in a state-of-the-art studio circa 1974, got stoned immaculate, and laid down grooves destined to boost population numbers. 21 names grace the credits, including bassist Mike Porcaro (Toto), keyboardist Steve Moore (Eyvind Kang, Bill Frisell, Sufjan Stevens), and percussionist Johnny Conga (Jackson 5, Sergio Mendes). Pros, all. The bulbous, quirkily articulate keyboard motifs recall George Duke at his most mischievous and the fluid guitar glints and glimmers evoke expensive-suited badasses George Benson and Earl Klugh; strategically placed chikka-wahs trigger flashbacks to blaxploitation-film soundtracks and porn-flick scores. Cheeba's clavinet and Rhodes piano-two of the greatest instruments ever-flex flamboyant muscles throughout; he also messes with an array of ARPs, Moogs, Wurlitzers, and myriad percussion toys. Pass the Information is some grown-ass-folks funk that could grow on you.' -Dave Segal, The Stranger "their mythic notoriety will soon become ubiquitous" -Wax Poetics "perfect production...like a recreation of some hip 70s studio band" -Dusty Groove.
