‘Nuf Said: Rise

Read "Rise" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

The music of 'Nuf Said is neither jazz nor funk nor soul nor rock. It's all of it and more. This New York-based quintet taps into each of those styles and mixes them all together to create a groove-heavy, stirring brand of music that's all its own.

Rise--'Nuf Said's second album, following My ...
