Robustelli creates an intelligent amalgamation
of hearty musical genres which include soul, R&B, rock, funk and hip
hop -- all deftly perched atop a strong foundation of jazz. While musical
influences such as Steely Dan and Earth, Wind and Fire are subtly apparent
throughout, the instrumentation, arrangement and complexity of this record
go far beyond a punchy horn section and funky bass line.
