Teddy G and the Groove Present:
Here's an excerpt from the album review on PAN Magazine (pan-mag.com), written by world-renowned percussion professor, Eugene Novotney, Humbolt State University:
MONOMYTH is an intriguing new album by steelpan artists, Teddy G and the Groove, that showcases the steelpan artform in an epic progressive rock platform. Using the concept albums of the progressive rock genre as its inspiration, MONOMYTH blends the progressive rock style with contemporary R&B, Funk, Afro-Cuban, Latin-Jazz, Soca, Afro-Caribbean, and Contemporary Jazz Fusion elements. The result is a hybrid soundscape, rooted in the progressive rock genre, but with an everchanging flow of grooves and styles.
Their outstanding musicianship is on full display throughout every track of this recording. Especially impressive are the many tasty solos which seamlessly fit the tunes and the styles perfectly. As a whole, the album comes across as being genuine, engaging and uniquely familiar, while simultaneously sounding fresh, current, and contemporary. MONOMYTH stands as a strong example that the steelpan artform is vital and versatile, and it is definitely a project deserving of your full attention.
