CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Keyboardist Robert Walter and reed man Karl Denson lead this five piece on the Get a Job tour where they feature music from an album of diverse covers of the same name. Songs from Gil Scott-Heron, Gene Ammons, George Harrison and Burt Bacharach among others get the Greyboys’ fun and funky jazz treatment, reimagined in ways you won’t expect. Come prepared to dance. — HH
From the venue:The Greyboy Allstars - Karl Denson, Elgin Park, Aaron Redfield, Chris Stillwell and Robert Walter - have no time for idle hands. The San Diego five-piece chose to use the shutdown to lock-in wisely and broadcast a live-stream series, which notches up their own jazz-funk and boogaloo narrative. Originally aired as Soul Dream—a four-part, episodic series on Nugs.net in the summer of 2021—Get a Job: Music from the Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream is a 10-song set of unique never-before-released covers that have become an integral part of the band’s famed live set for nearly three decades.
