North Mississippi Allstars :: Set Sail  

by
Na Up And Rolling, hun fenomenale plaat uit 2019, was er al geen twijfel meer mogelijk: de North Mississippi Allstars is de allerbeste roots-band van deze tijd. Set Sail, hun nieuwe album, bevestigt die status met vlag en wimpel. Drummer Cody en gitarist Luther Dickinson hebben voor de gelegenheid zanger Lamar Williams Jr., zoon van de Allman Brothers-bassist, aan hun groep toegevoegd. Soul is daardoor een nog belangrijker onderdeel geworden in de muzikale mix. Om dat te benadrukken is de Stax-legende William Bell te gast op Never Want To Be Kissed, dat hij samen met Cody en Luther schreef en produceerde. Zo gaat het van hoogtepunt naar hoogtepunt. Set Sail is een tijdloze en duizelingwekkend goede plaat!

Luther and Cody Dickinson started the North Mississippi Allstars in 1996 as a loose collective of like-minded second-generation musicians who shared a local repertoire and regional style. Over the years the lineup shifted by design, and each NMA record offered up a different combination of collaborators. Set Sail finds the brothers working with Jesse Williams on bass and Lamar Williams, Jr. for the first time. Set Sail, the North Mississippi Allstars’ thirteenth album, follows 2019’s Up and Rolling, which was nominated for a Grammy Award for the Best Contemporary Blues Album in 2021. Set Sail continues the band’s tradition of creating roots music that displays remarkable variety. With their latest record, NMA are able to build upon their self-described sound of Primitive Modernism. A melding of the new and the old, traditional and futuristic, crafted lyrics and improvisational music.
