5.0 out of 5 stars Getting better all the time, 12 Jun 2009
This review is from: Bugs In Amber (Audio CD)
A change of name, The Blessing added "Get" in front to avoid confusion with a punk band, but no reduction in the mind-blowing inventiveness of this Bristol foursome. The rhythm section also play in Portishead but this is as far from that as you can get. Forget categorisation, because this band does not (try to) fit into the straight-ahead-jazz fraternity's desire to peg anyone not post-bop as not worthy. Whether it can be labelled or not, this is hard driving, beat driven, melodic jazz. Different from album one, but just as good. I have Bleach cake, from that one, on hard rotation and there are a few on Bugs that may join it soon. Imagine Cream if Clapton had played horns or Jack White producing Clarence Clemons taking up with Five Peace Band. I hear Arun Ghosh; I hear Bill Bruford and Barbara Thompson; I hear Steve Reich played by The Clash. Bless The Getting!
