Many of the compositions are by Pedley and Pondel, but some well-chosen covers serve to illustrate this band’s unique style by how they spin this familiar material. There’s War’s “Low Rider,” Laura Nyro’s “Stoned Soul Picnic” with guest vocalist Sharon Hendrix, and a medley of Bill Wither’s “Use Me” and the sixties top-40 hit “Green-Eyed Lady” (by the one-hit wonders Sugarloaf, for you trivia buffs). Kombo has come up with a winning formula; it strikes the right balance between easy-to-digest, upbeat, groovy tunes, but with just enough quirky humor and well-executed solos to be individualistic and musically interesting.
