On this album the band stretches out, adding Latin jazz, and 60's film score influences to their Booker T. & the MGs meets Blue Note/Prestige sound.
For The Set-Up, the sophomore album from instrumental trio the City Champs, the, well, set-up is this: Come for the Latin jazz deconstruction of the theme from Mad Men (aka Aceyalone's "A Beautiful Mine"), stay for the sharp, playful jazz, R&B and soul. After all, there are plenty of worse ways to lure new listeners into the fold. Those who hear what guitarist Joe Restivo, Hammond organist Al Gamble and drummer George Sluppick (as well as a handful of ace Memphis sidemen) have to offer will not be disappointed
