Space Capone orbits the funk on intergalactic gangster grooves.

Streaming Audio

Led by Aaron Winters and his saucy falsetto, and based in Nashville, Tenn., Space Capone seems on the surface to be a funky rhythm and blues band. Yet, after releasing three studio albums, producing several music videos and playing events including Bonnaroo, the group has shown it has what it takes to leave its mark on this planet.

Speaking of leaving a mark, remember the Saturday Night Live character Sergio, played by a shirtless Jon Hamm, who belts out a scorching saxophone line at terribly inappropriate moments? Is it possible to hear those once ubiquitous '80s-era sax solos with a straight face, especially after Sergio has had his way with them? Not really, but so what?

Space Capone isn't asking to be taken so seriously. The band brings back that sultry reed of yesteryear, and it does so with gusto. A listen through the session uncovers some restrained R&B, á la Steely Dan, and the band is clearly having fun, and listeners should too.

This Live at KDHX performance brings together a robust band of players, including keys, bright guitars and a driving rhythm section, led by Winters, channeling both his inner and outer pimp.

Hold on, here comes the sax. Sergio!
