Columbus' One Under
plays a mix of funk, rock, and jazz that takes about a half-dozen detours before stopping somewhere in the middle of jam-band territory. Latin percussion also flows through the group's music, which simultaneously sounds relaxed, warm, and familiar. This is all the more impressive in light of the fact that the band hasn't even celebrated its first anniversary yet. Still, the sextet has roots in such regional faves as Ekoostik Hookah, Mary Adam 12, and the Ark Band groups that know a show isn't complete till each and every member has had a chance to noodle around with an eight-minute solo. One Under is road-testing material for a CD it hopes to release in late spring.
