The Greyboy Allstars have released their sixth studio album, Get A Job: Music from the Original Broadcast Series Soul Dream, via Knowledge Room Recordings.

The new album arrives as the San Diego funk outfit—comprised of saxophonist Karl Denson, guitarist Elgin Park, organist Robert Walter, bassist Chris Stillwell, and drummer Aaron Redfield—continues a lengthy 2022 national tour.

Captured during studio sessions for the The Greyboy Allstars’ 2021 Soul Dream livestream series, Get A Job is comprised of ten unique, never-before-released covers that have become an integral part of the band’s live shows. The record includes reimagined versions of George Harrison‘s “Taxman”, Burt Bacharach and Hal David‘s “Walk On By”, Gary Bartz and Langston Hughes‘ “I’ve Known Rivers”, and more.

“We keep a running master list of around 70 tunes. From those I picked a mixture of tried-and-true live staples and songs that weren’t always in common rotation,” said Walter of the Get a Job set. “Usually, for gigs I propose a list and then the other members edit and tweak it. For the taping, we wanted each episode to have a theme. Two of them focused on originals and the other two were covers: live favorites, and music that came out on Prestige Records. The tunes on this release are the best of the covers.”

“The covers come from the tradition of the artists we love and how they would grab the pop tunes of the day, most likely to broaden their listening base. George Benson, Grant Green, and Kenny Burrell all did Beatles and Bacharach tunes,” added Park.
