Harvie S: Funky Cha by Todd S. Jenkins, published on May 3, 2006. Harvie S's inimitable, fearless and fun-filled approach to Latin jazz reaches a new pinnacle on Funky Cha. The bassist's musical sensibilities couldn't be summed up better than on the opening track, a re-visioning of Monk's "Rhythm-A-Ning. His bass and Daniel Kelly's piano pulse out Thelonian arhythmic fragments over Beaver Bausch's tappy drum groove, building in quirky intensity until we're jumping to find out where they're going with it.

Harvie S has been at this a long time; in 1966, he traveled to Cuba to study with some of the island's master players. Since then, he's masterfully blended the two forms, working with great bandleaders like Juan-Carlos Formell, Stan Getz, Paquito d'Rivera, and Arturo O'Farrill, among others. The one major thing he's learned: both forms have the same African rhythmic roots.

Harvie S: Funky Cha By Todd S. Jenkins AllAboutJazz. Harvie S’s inimitable, fearless and fun-filled approach to Latin jazz reaches a new pinnacle on Funky Cha. The bassist’s musical sensibilities couldn’t be summed up better than on the opening track, a re-visioning of Monk’s Rhythm-A-Ning. Only Kelly and tenor man Scott Robert Avidon, who guests on three tracks, are carryovers from S’s last album, Texas Rumba, yet the full band sounds as if it has been together for years. This is a hallmark of musicianship, and one of many reasons why Funky Cha is impressive. Harvie loves Monk as much as Latin sounds, and the influences meld well on tunes like A Bright Moment, one of the more pensive tracks (until things really get rolling). He recorded the tune earlier for New Beginning but sharply reinvents it for this session.
