NEWS! Dick Metcalf at Improvijazzation Nation writes a great review of 'Mandy's Secret':

"Beat Funktion – MANDY’S SECRET: I’ve reviewed a couple of CD’s from this great jazz group, most recently in issue 145; they seem to only get better with each release! This new CD pays homage to some of the great funk & soul music from the ’70’s, and as you listen to the 5:07 “Snap To It“, you’ll hear that they’ve got that FUNK dow-un to a “T” (I just totally dug the organ on this one)! For total laid-back groove, you’ll love “Are We Done?” (dance to it with your favorite lady, too – just make sure the lights are down low). The absolute killer for this reviewer was “Thunderlips“… if you think “Shaft”, you’ll have it pegged quite clearly! I can tell you now, you’ll be hearing more from this group (composer Daniel Lantz is putting it together as I type). I give this great Swedish group a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98!"
