Mo’ Blow – “Gimme The Boots”
Here they come: the young German guns! With heavy grooves, earthy sounds and driving rhythms Mo’ Blow is causing an ever-growing international furore. Once again a member of ACT’s „Young German Jazz“series is among the pioneers of the next generation. The Berlin-based jazzfunk quartet has already astonished the scene with their snappy ACT debut „For Those About To Funk“.The Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper wrote, “Party, not with run-of-the-mill grooves, but with quality”, whilst others praised the timelessness and complexity of the album. In addition to good critiques, they also won the “Future Sounds” competition at the Leverkusen Jazz Days, there being no doubt in the jury’s mind: “Mo’ Blow light up a sparkling funk firework on the stage”.
And now, the new release “Gimme The Boots” proves all the more that Mo’ Blow really is the successful hybrid of sounds of the seventies with the contemporary. The group’s signature sound that has developed over the ten years is displayed here in an impressive manner. A musical energy is captured here that the group has earned itself over the years, in hundreds of concerts both in Germany and abroad. The band frequently leaves audiences stunned and surprised, be it in Norway, Russia or Malaysia. Also Nils Landgren couldn’t resist: he produced “Gimme The Boots” just as he did the ACT debut. Mo’ Blow – a band that receives more and more attention beyond Germany. These boys have truly earned their reputation as one of the most energetic acts around.
Energetic spicy groovy funk.
