SO glad I went to the album release party at 3 Kings for this one! The show was a blast, all the bands that played were INCREDIBLE, and it was just a great room full of great people having a great time!
The very next day, I put the needle to the vinyl. Since then, I’ve probably listened to the full album 15 or more times in the month (or so) since it’s release.
The Dendrites are an instrumental ska band; but could easily be called Jazz, as well (is there such a thing as “Jazz Ska”??? That’s what this is.)
The warm, welcoming jazzy brass is beautifully balanced with an amazingly talented meandering ska-style bass and percussion. The music has a very nostalgic feel, like Grandma’s House (either your ACTUAL Grandma’s house, or Grandma’s House, the Brewery… take your pick… either one applies)… it reminds me of good times… it makes me want to get up and move around… it makes me dance while I clean my house…
It’s the PERFECT album for any gathering! People really enjoy the music, and it stimulates conversation nicely!
Honestly, there aren’t enough good things I can say about this album. Quite frankly, I think it’s my favorite album of 2017!
