The style of Play it Hard

This hardbop jazz formation plays jazz with great rhythm and a great sound. Hardbop evolved out of bebop and is influenced by blues, gospel and Latin. It is easier to listen to than bebop.
Play it Hard is inspired by bands like The Cannonball Adderley Quintet and Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers.
Anyway: they play it the hard(bop) way!
