The Herbaliser Band
The Herbaliser Band is an offshoot project from long-running UK jazz/hip-hop duo, The Herbaliser. Although The Herbaliser put out an album just last year, The Herbaliser Band hasn’t had a new release since it’s debut way back in 2000. With Session Two, the Band offers up 11 tracks (plus a little secret song) of smooth, instrumental jazz fusion that’s mellow without being dull. Short vocal samples are dropped here and there to keep things interesting. Various bits from what sounds like news coverage of the moon landing on â€œMoon Sequenceâ€ are particularly enjoyable. Though the music has a distinctly 1970s feel, the modern touches, like top-notch turntablism for example, are there and blended perfectly with classic horns and electric piano. This album has summer barbeque written all over it.
