Lettuce is a 7 piece jam band out of Brooklyn, NY who’ve taken up a mission to recreate the musical years of the 70s. That era produced some of the amazing bands of our time-The Meters, Sly Stone, Earth Wind & Fire, Parliament-as well as some of our best funk philosophers like Gil Scott Heron and Curtis Mayfield.

The band itself is comprised of members from New Yorks jazz community, and although the soul revival thing might be wearing out its welcome, the band does its best to recreate the era and still keeping the sound fresh.

The Lettuce/Dwele collabo of Curtis Mayfield’s “Move on Up,” is straightforward, but its one of my favorite songs of all time, so its def. worth a listen. (from Wuzz)
