(CD) Colemine Records CLMN 12003, 2010-03-30

The Jive Turkeys are made up of four musicians who have been playing together for the better part of the last five years in a hip-hop group called Soundscape. Soundscape is a group based in Oxford, OH, home of Miami University. This is where Matt Amburgy (organ), Terry Cole (bass), Andrew DeRoberts (guitar), and Rob Houk (drums) first met. And while Soundscape has always provided all of them the opportunity to grow and develop as musicians through the group’s unique fusion of genres (hip-hop, funk, jazz, rock), The Jive Turkeys is a group that is much more narrow in its focus. The formation of The Jive Turkeys came about when the four decided they wanted to record some stripped-down, raw funk. So, they borrowed an organ, a Leslie, some old amps, all got together in a tiny little room and started cranking out tracks. The full-length debut from the kings of midwest instrumental funk is called Bread & Butter - an appropriate title considering the album is nothing but funky, soulful instrumental goodness from start to finish.

"Some real cage-rattling funk!" - - Dusty Groove America
"In the four-piece tradition of the Meters, Middletown, Ohio's Jive Turkeys execute a pair of spirited funk instrumentals, using organ, guitar, bass, and drums to funky effect. While 'Straight Fire' cissy struts across the A-side, the up-tempo 'Thumpin' careens full throttle across the flip." - Wax Poetics
