"A scintillating live experience that will leave you amazed, questioning pre-conceived ideas of music genres, eye-opening and jaw-dropping, there is simply no other band in the world quite like Get The Blessing."
Blending mutant jazz sensibilities with spacey electronics and post rock atmospheres, Get The Blessing venture into new, unexplored territories. Bassist Jim Barr once remarked that Get The Blessing were “total outsiders” and “the punk entry” when they won the 2008 BBC Jazz Award for Best Album with ‘All Is Yes’. Six albums down the line, the same could still be said to hold true, albeit with a little more wisdom at their disposal.
Formed in 1999 to share a fascination with the improvisation and monophonic nature of Ornette Coleman’s earlier works, the line-up has remained the same with Portishead rhythm masters Jim Barr and Clive Deamer on bass and drums respectively, Pete Judge on trumpet and Jake McMurchie on saxophone. And all this despite other commitments for everyone, not least Deamer’s recruitment as Radiohead’s second live drummer in 2012. The band’s old friend and collaborator – and Portishead guitarist – Adrian Utley also makes the occasional guest appearance.
To celebrate 20 years of Get The Blessing, the band are putting out a collection of unreleased archive tracks in early 2020.
