    Like Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Lettuce presents nonstop boogaloo funk/jazz. The hard-jamming band is an outgrowth of friendships dating back to high school and Berklee's summer program 10
    years ago. During that era Lettuce jammed incessantly and, according to its folklore, the band often showed up around the Boston area not having instruments or a gig. The group was always asking,
    "Let us use your instruments, let us jam and let us crash here"-thus the name. Now with plenty of working experience, tighter chops and help from friends such as guitarist John Scofield (Lettuce
    drummer Adam Deitch is in his band) and legendary trombonist Fred Wesley, among others, Lettuce reunited to rekindle the spark from its early days.

    Energy overflows on Outta Here, especially on the title track and "Nyack," which are laden with blazing brass. The funked-out jazz that this band of 25-year-olds produces is unrelenting, and the
    group's impressive cohesiveness is the CD's major attribute. Originality, on the other hand though, is pretty much nonexistent. The groves are primarily retro-styled compositions or covers that
    unabashedly draw from the '70s rocking/soul inroads of Herbie Hancock, Tower of Power, Rufus and the grand master, James Brown. Prime examples are "Superfred," featuring Wesley doing a take on
    Brown's "Call Me Super Bad," and "Twisted," highlighted by guest vocalist Toni Smith that's Chaka Khan and Rufus personified.

    If the sounds and styles of Outta Here are new to you, you'll probably be partying down; if not, you'll likely be saying "I'm outta here."

    Sortie : 1982

    By Mike Stone (Notorious) from http://mikestonemusic.blogspot.com

    The album cover may look sort of spooky & mysterious (Gives me the creeps, sometimes, but what a great-looking model), but as the saying goes, you can never judge a book by its cover. This
    1982 Polydor/PolyGram release by Shakatak was one of the group's best R&B/Jazz recordings at that time.

    Most of you may remember the songs, "Lose Myself", and "Lonely Afternoon", which features the sultry, sexy vocals of Tracie Ackerman (some thought it was Jill Saward singing on the track, but she
    is with the group at this time of recording). They are the actual tracks on this album, so you can stop worrying about this album being another fabrication of "Night Birds" replacing the actual
    song that was supposed to be there. In fact, "Night Birds & "Invitations" did come out the same year in 1982. That's primarily the reason why some Shakatak fans felt confused on what year
    these two albums came out(?).

    Tracklist :

    1. Invitations

    2. Lose Myself

    3. Lonely Afternoon

    4. Steppin' Out

    5. Stranger

    6. Usual Situation

    7. Sol Fuego

    8. In Shadows

    9. Invitations (Remix) BONUS TRACK
