A long time ago I use to have a CD of a band, I believe west coast, that was considered in the same light as the Jazz Messengers. They did one Hard Bop album then I believe they went off to be known as a funk or fusion band. I think they were a 5-piece band, notably had a trombone player. Very little known group and for the life of me I can't remember the name. Does this sound familiar to anyone?
