"Mo'Fone puts the fun back in funk."

Bill Milkowski, (JazzTimes)

Steinkoler slams with authority while the horns intertwine in syncopated fashion on party numbers like “Wiggle,” “Sling Shot” and “Seven Evan.” Sousaphone ace and Dirty Dozen founder Kirk Joseph guests on the funereal “Rock of Ages,” while tenorman Dann Zinn blends on a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Fool in the Rain.”
