Yeah, sadly this one seems to be fairly obscure - at least in prog rock circles. Such a shameOuch

I believe you meant to mention PhD first and high school second. Wink

Exactly! Sorry for that! :P

If i were to have a conversation with your pal, i would say two things:
1st) To compare prog rock and blues rock is like comparing a high school essay with a PhD thesis: the second one may be a nice reading, but it doesn't have the complexity or the depth of explanation the first one does.
2nd) To consider something groovy is an extremely relative issue. If you came to Brazil (my country) and said that blues rock is a groovy style, most people would laugh and (excuse me the language) sh*t in your face. Our popular music styles, like 'Samba', 'Pagode' and 'Axé' are undoubtly ten thousand times more groovier than any blues rock song is, was, or it will ever be. You will never be able to dance to a blues rock song enjoying yourself like you can to any of our styles.
(PS: I don't mean to diminish the value of blues rock, i love bands like Gov't Mule, Joe Bonamasse, and many more. What i meant is that you can always win a conversation by being an a****le, but when being like that there will always be someone who can win over you and put you back in your place. Hope i made myself clear.)
(PPS: In this thought i took in consideration that groovy means something that provides kiddy joy and is highly danceable to.) 
Cheers! 


In music, especially Prog there are a lot of different classifications on what groove(s) or is groovey sounding. It's hard to specify, but I dont think anybody has the right to 'sh*t of anyone's face' just because that one thinks definitively that culturally their music grooves more than the other. South American and North American music origins are vastly different
And one simply doesn't groove more than the other. It's just a different type of groove and wether you think that it's like comparing a phd paper to high school essay maybe a bit subjective.

Of course, I understand and respect that. I would never say that to anyone. What i meant is that, if he wanted to win the conversation with his (apparently a****le) pal, and that if by groove his pal meant the level of how 'dancy' and happy a song is or not, he could citate these brazilian rhythms, which are, without a doubt, more dancy and happy than blues rock. No need to get touchy, i'm on the guys and in the politeness side! :P

So what. It is not like I want to dance to it. It is better that prog is not mainstream because that sh8t goes out of style and never comes back. Done any disco moves lately?

That was funkadelic to the wall jamming there.


The Sax was incredible played by Paddy Corea. The track is Mercy bu I havent heard any others. Reminds me more of Osibisa and Santana with some Zappa thrown in


It grooves man!

Upload a video of that! Too funny. You would get a zillion hits on you tube.
Threshold still have all the goods that makes them one of the best classic rock/Prog metal bands in the world. 2014's For The Journey is worth a serious listen.

Almost all jazz-fusion is groovy

And what about bands like Osibisa, Cymande, Mandrill ?
Also the german krautrock fusion band Embryo :
 
Among the giants of prog :
 
 
 
 
 
But the most groovy of all the prog bands is probably Saga :

^ IMO, the idea of a groove has more to do more with the emphasis on the rhythm section. That said, I would probably rule a song or two out in my head.
