The heavyweights of the contemporary [British] jazz scene. —The Independent Like the soundtrack to a wild car chase, Get the Blessing’s stylish and energetic sound is a mad thrill ride of Ornette Coleman-informed horn lines and a rhythm section that’s hot as hell and cool as an English cucumber. Blessed with jazz and rock chops--and grooves to spare--group members have contributed to albums by Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant, Hawkwind, and Radiohead. Their debut All is Yes won best album at the 2008 BBC Jazz Awards. With not a pinch of fat on their arrangements, and featuring the same great rhythm section as trip hop legends Portishead, Get the Blessing play fiery and brainy flat-out grooves!
