In the Spirit of…” (2014)

 

 

 

 

All About Jazz.com (Ian Patterson):

In The Spirit Of… is drum and bass heavy to be sure, yet BSD+Bass’ percussive force and the undulating rhythmic grooves are as much embedded in the full, stirring ensemble voice. And, if it doesn’t quite draw blood, it sure as hell raises a satisfying sweat.

All About Jazz.com (Jakob Bækgaard):

Past and present, East and West. Opposites meet on a beautiful and eclectic album that is supported by
a generous high-quality DVD that brims with more than two hours of material, including a fascinating
road movie. The perfect introduction to an adventurous big band that deserves wide recognition.

It’s a pleasure to find a band that is successful in mixing sophisticated sounds with palpable rhythms, balance head and heart.

Gaffa (Ivan Rod):

Big bandets musik er som vanligt: inciterende, jazzet, baseret på drum’n bass og ramt af elementer af 70’er rock, funk og fusion. In the Spirit of… er en forrygende sfærisk energiudladning, big bandets suverænt bedste udgivelse til dato.

Lira.se (Lira Gillar):

Så fortsätter det, både på cd:n och den medföljande dvd:n, och det är bara att hänga på de fantastiska upptäcktsfärderna. Den norske journalisten Terje Mosness har beskrivit Blood Sweat Drum + Bass som ”A young, astonishing, dynamic, special, vital, sound monster”! Det är bara att instämma.

I have been watching the Blood Sweat Drum + Bass in recent years, and every new recording comes to confirm the initial impression that it is a top orchestra of our time ….. This orchestra is a whole world.
