Groundation :: A Miracle

by

Groundation a-miracle-coverEen criticus omschreef de muziek van de Californische band Groundation als ‘Burning Spear ontmoet John Coltrane’. Hun achtste studio-album A Miracle trekt die jazz-reggae lijn creatief door. Reggae is, zeker ritmisch, de basis, maar daarbinnen worden grenzen opgezocht en wordt er naar hartelust geëxperimenteerd. Unieke en aanstekelijke muziek is het resultaat. Extra attractie: de psychedelische hoes van A Miracle is ontworpen door Neville Garrick, ooit de art director van Bob Marley.

Since the dawn of recorded sound, music can be seen as a giant tapestry to which all musicians lend their creative influence. One band focused on the explosive evolution of this musical ecosystem is Groundation. Rooted in the reggae one-drop sound of Jamaica, Groundation seamlessly incorporates the harmonic, polyrhythmic, and improvisational elements of jazz, breathing new life into both genres. As one critic described it, Groundation begins at the crossroads where Burning Spear meets John Coltrane.
