The Right Now

The Right Now

Soul/Pop (Chicago)

Classic Soul and Funk inform the grooves of this tight septet, a highlight of last year’s MPMF. The ensemble’s debut album, Carry Me Home, features slinky, after-hours love ballads and horn-driven party jams that fall somewhere between the modern Neo Soul practitioners and the old-school Funk/R&B bands currently back in vogue. The Right Now is set apart because they revisit the Soul music of the mid-’70s instead of rehashing James Brown rhythms or Motown’s shimmying Pop.
