Has anyone gotten into these cats?

 

I discovered them a few weeks ago when they popped up in my "you might like" section on YouTube.  YouTube were right (I liked them).  After watching the video, this one for the song Lingus, I then did a search to see if they were touring.  Found that they had 2 dates left in the tour with one only a 30 min. drive away. 

 

The whole evening was incredible (openers were a local act, Mamma Sol, and then the Robert Glasper Experiment with Chris Dave sitting in on drums).

 

If you get into jazz or jazz fusion at all, give 'em a spin

Like it. Has a nice, smooth '70s quality to it, slightly urban commercial, not too Muzaky. I describe music like a wine taster. lol.

Seen them twice, at jazz festivals in 2013 and 2014.

 

I don't like them.  No space to breath, just an avalanche of notes.

 

Saw Robert Glasper live a couple of times too.  The second time I was so tired that I fell asleep at the back of the tent.  Gawd knows what they must have thought.
