Well this is a band with some serious pedigree, a hard jazz/afrofunk seven-piece with contributors from Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland joined by people who’ve played with acts as diverse and accomplished as Zun Zun Egui, Mulatu Astatke, Hello Skinny, Fela!, Transglobal Underground and Heliocentrics to name but a few!
As you would expect it’s highly rhythmic and danceable, mixing African and western traditions for a propulsive couple of tracks of hot, vibrant party jazz that falls somewhere between Zun Zun Egui and Gala Drop, all frantic wide-eyed melodies and cheeky playful polyrhythms - my favourite moment in fact comes right towards the end of the B-side ‘We Are Enough’ when the sax cools it for long enough to be able to pick out a brilliant bit of polyrhythmic handclapping before everything bursts back in one last time. It’s the sound of a load of talented musicians getting loose and having a bit of fun. I like it.
