Morris Day and the Time: House of Blues, Hollywood, Calif. (1996)

Morris-Day-and-the-Time-7

By Scott Goldfine

Minneapolis funksters Morris Day and the Time continued their comeback tour with a lively 80-minute concert at L.A.’s House of Blues Tuesday night. Day and valet Jerome Benton clowned and cavorted around, displaying the ultra-cool shtick that made them a sensation in the 1980s, while the band (featuring three new members) kept hits like “Jungle Love” taut and urgent.

Now, what about a new album? (Editor’s note: Under the name The Original 7ven, they finally delivered the spectacular album Condensate in 2011, ranking with their best.)

GRADE: B+

Recommended: Condensate (Amazon)
