Entertainment Reviews:

JazzTimes - p.122
"Culbertson puts his trombone through calisthenics...and rounds up Larry Graham and saxophonist Ronnie Laws for 'The House Of Music,' a sweet blues trip that breaks down near its end to a wonderfully chaotic resolution of brass and party chants."

The music of light jazz superstar Brian Culbertson is more likely to be associated with candlelit dinners and walks on the beach than shaking one's tailfeather on the dance floor, but BRINGING BACK THE FUNK aims to change all that. With help from a veritable who's who of funk luminaries, including Maceo Parker, Bootsy Collins, Fred Wesley, Bernie Worrell, and Sharon Jones, among others, the trombonist/keyboardist/composer lays down some serious grooves on tracks like "Funkin' Like My Father," "Hollywood Swinging," and "You Got to Funkatize." There is enough of a smooth sheen here to satisfy Culbertson's old fans, but enough funk punch to keep things bouncing.
