Bristolian jazzy post-rockers Get The Blessing return to the Site Festival.
With the release of their third album OC DC this March, Get The Blessing are once again elbowing their way out of easy categorisation.
As winners of the 2008 BBC Jazz Award win for Best New Album they wear their jazz credentials lightly but defiantly. A shared love of legendary saxophonist Ornette Coleman’s early quartet inspired their boldly monophonic instrumentation. The intricate but absolutely rock-solid rhythm section forms the glue that holds Get The Blessing together, with the dual sax and trumpet frontline working with the bass to create melodies and harmonies. This Site Festival highlight will be a fantastic opportunity to explore the fascinating and idiosyncratic musical world of the Get The Blessing.
