My experience with jazz is mostly clouded by The Fast Show Yes, in the past I have reviewed trioVD and The Physics House Band, but more often than not it is John Thompson's face turning towards me saying "Jazz club…Nice!" whenever someone mentions jazz.
If you're anything like me, then Get The Blessing are the band for you. You can stream Corniche on their Soundcloud page or by clicking below.
It’s a smooth, grooving tune that completely blows away any of the unsavoury connotations associated with the early-90’s. Taken from their fourth album Lope & Antilope which is out now on Naim Jazz, it lulls you into a false sense of security, which then explodes into a kaleidoscope of sax, effervescent bass and tightly rhythmic drums.
For something a little different this January, you can’t go wrong with Get The Blessing.
