||In advance of their upcoming jazz fusion album comes a re-release of
2 original songs from the band’s now hard-to-fnd 2010 album, Kindred.
The frst side features legendary saxophonist, Wendell Harrison, who
is best known for his work on Detroit’s renowned Tribe record label.
‘Kindred’ is a dark and heady composition reminiscent of Miles Davis’s
fusion-era material, which despite it’s abstractions, is underpinned by a
heavy, head-nodding groove.
On the ?ip is ‘Polyester People’, an explosive, up-t empo jam which
shows off the keyboard skills of Jeremy Ellis. Despite being best known
for playing the drum machine alongside the Roots on the Tonight Show
with Jimmy Fallon, Ellis is an incredible keyboardist in his own right. His
contribution on the Fender Rhodes calls to mind Herbie Hancock’s best
work with the Headhunters, and the band never lets up under him!
