Like Incognito, Brand New Heavies and Jamiroquai, Down to the Bone is a jazz-funk group of the purest form. Spread Love Like Wildfire is their new up-with-people musical celebration of life and the world needs an album full of joy like this one. Songs like "Angel Baby" featuring N'Dambi and "Wildfire Woman" are injected with a seventies soul sound while staying firmly rooted in the nu-jazz sound coming out of England these days. With remixes by Agent K and Bugz in the Attic's Daz-I-Kue and tweaks by Neil Cowley from Zero 7, dance floors will be alighted with their fresh sound this summer and for a long time to come. Down to the Bone's groovy sounds will be a joy for all lovers of rare groove and future funk.
Giant Step, Summer 2005

Down To The Bone, on it's sixth CD, continues to pump out it's hard grooves and brassy horns that defy easy pigeonholing.
The core musicians remain the same, with producer and composer Stuart Wade, Paul 'Shilts' Weimar on sax, Neil Angilley and Neil Cowley on keyboards, Tony Remy on guitar ,Richard Sadler on bass and percussion and Neal Wilkinson on drums. Like their 'chill' music counterparts, the groove is, of course, the thing. Unlike many of those bands , however, DTTB has incorporated more and more live music on it's CDs, resulting in a warmer sound. Guest stars always make DTTB CDs fresh and the big one here is flutist Jeremy Steig, who has performed with legends like Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Bill Evans and Jan Hammer. He adds a new sound to the DTTB's jams' Memphis Groove' and 'Wildfire Woman'.

The standout radio track on 'Spread Love Like Wildfire' is 'Tiburon', which was co-written by Tim Best, who assisted with the song 'Brooklyn Heights' on the bands debut CD. The song has much of the same groove as that classic CD. Like that work, the groove here is relentless. and Down To The Bone remains one of the grooviest groove bands in any musical genre
