The third release on the Preservation Project sees the Mancefield & Brother Man Band deliver a funk fueled nugget of top drawer quality with Parts 1 & 2 of ‘Brotherman.’ Don’t sleep.
“Brotherman”, a full blown funk instrumental from Mancefield & Brother Man Band found buried in the archives somewhere feels very reminiscent of stage band music from the 1960s and 70s. Part 1 on the A-side opens with a major key splash that promises good things to come. The track delivers as the band moves into the hallmark heavy bass, with a horn section blasting a melody that’s almost instantly memorable. Then into some sick saxophone that adds some significant heat — at a time before the sax became a staple for radio-safe smooth jazz. Part 2 on the flip continues in the same fashion going in just a bit deeper and heavy all around.
