“Caldera” features a merging of the band’s live show energy with studio sophistication. With with lively brass, mesmerizing percussion and tight grooves, the songs show off each of the group’s eight distinct musical voices that creates their signature blend of funk, soul, psychedelic rock, R&B, progressive jazz, and Afrobeat.
