Get the Blessing

Get the Blessing is the absolute buzz band of the moment! Four devoted practitioners of jazz and rock, including two members of the Portishead family (bassist Jim Barr and drummer Clive Deamer), a shower of much-coveted awards from the release of their debut album (including Jazz Album of the Year, according to the BBC) and, above all, a sound from somewhere else. It is a sound that recalls the 1980s, but also folds in lounge, pop, rock and of course jazz, and plenty of improv, performed by musicians dressed to the nines who occasionally also wear brown paper bags on their heads... all of which adequately conveys the idea that we're talking about a band that defies categorization. Let's just say that Get The Blessing is a formidably droll beat machine as precise as it is chaotic, joyously breaking down barriers and inventing a new, diabolically refreshing sound. "The new heroes of the UK jazz scene" raved the London Metro. We couldn't agree more!

André Ménard
André Ménard (Festival International de Jazz de Montréal)
The English scene currently seems the most stimulating to me: everything fits, without preconceived notions. The music aspires to everything, which, as in the bebop era of the 1940s, is the essence of a progressive jazz.
