Track review of "Shag Bag"

Chance Hayden: Shag Bag
Warm springtime, sunshine, good friends—it must be time for a party. Chance Hayden is certainly feeling the joy and ready to kick off something fun. Working around pandemic restrictions left him and his colleagues ready to bounce and blow off some steam, and bagging (sorry) the iconic Ronnie Foster on keys made the perfect funk-fusion topping. The standalone single "Shag Bag" packs a drum-and-conga groove to get the backyard shaking, slathers on a dash of bright horns, then ties it up with Hayden's trademark fret-dancing and Foster's jaunty organ in close step. A fresh bit of fun to make one's Saturday-night dinner or socially-distant barbecue that much sunnier.
