Vinyl Hampdin is my all-star horn band that answers the question "What would Chicago, Blood Sweat and Tears and Tower of Power sound like if they started out today?" –an amazing ensemble that can only be described as "rocked out incredibly funky jaw dropping ear candy!"

A Review by Science Fiction Legend Spider Robinson:
I hear it DOES get better than this....but first you have to die in a state of grace....
I have just listened to RED for the fifth time, since it dropped this morning. DAMN!
All I can liken it to is, if Blood Sweat & Tears or Chicago or Tower of Power or Chris McGregor’s Brotherhood Of Breath had spent every second of the last 40 or 50 years in constant improvement and musical and spiritual growth, they might sound this good by now. And maybe not. This is what the doctor ordered, and why the preacher danced. I'm 68 years old, and I honestly didn't expect to get this lucky again. Give me one or two albums this good a year, and I'll agree to live to 102 or more; otherwise, forget it.
They talk about music to die for:
this is music to LIVE for!
