Step Off


Reissue of their comeback album that was originally on Soul Jazz. Eleven years between LPs, and yet Step Off picked up exactly where ESG left off, neither unnecessarily updating their signature sound nor retracing over ground they previously staked out. Recording for Soul Jazz, the label whose 2000 retrospective A South Bronx Story reclaimed the group's austere, remote grooves from the clutches of sampleheads, ESG (joined here by second-generation Scroggins girls Chistelle on guitar and Nicole on bass) still loom ahead of the curve -- subtle refinements like Renee's now-mature and oh-so-sly vocals result in music that is more defiant and confident than ever before. This is still funk with an alien otherworldliness the likes of which George Clinton never envisioned, stripped to its barest essentials for maximum impact.
