Good Jazz from downtown Bristol. The drums and bass propel this along in a swirling energy that oscillates between cool and riotous. 'Another Brother's Mother' is spiritual in the same way Ornette was. 'That Aint It' - the closing track is perfect with Jake McMurchie's sax revving the whole thing upwards and outwards. There's more I could say - but that detracts from what is an album worth listening to, not writing about. Great music for a Saturday. This combines the punch of rock, the solidity of late punk and most of all, the beauty of good jazz.

Definitely at the other end of the spectrum from Esperanza Spalding. Very pork pie hat. A bit Ronson, but more, well, jazzy. Doesn't remind you of Portishead, so get over it.

High Octane bass-riffs, tight as a duck's proverbial drums and horns that go from snappy to spacey with much aplomb.

Should sell like hot cakes. Get one now while you're fingers can still be burned!

This is the most exciting band and sound I have heard in ages. Bass, drums (ex-Portishead but this band is NOTHING like that), trumpet and sax, with a few helpers on occasion produce a driving but melodic rockhard jazz. The nearest I can think is a harder, edgier Bill Bruford or John McLaughlin, but The Blessing are truly original. I saw them live and was completely blown away. If you only buy one jazz record this year THIS IS IT!

This album/group seeem to be in the midst of a frenzied PR campaign.Can't think why.The music is ok in a rather British "Jazz" sense but it's not particularly tight nor that original nor edgy as other gushing reviewers claim.Jaga Jazzist, now that is tight playing or Zappa's Mothers of Invention..that's tight.
Over hyped...and fails to really deliver.
