For the first two minutes of atmospheric discourse between the twin trombones of Jeb Bishop and Jeff Albert, and the human beatbox that is Napoléon Maddox, you would be forgiven for thinking that Hamid Drake's Reggaeology was an ironically titled free improv set. But that impression doesn't last. Infectious riddims kick in, based on Bob Marley's "One Drop," and from that point on it's a joyous ride.

Mélange de jazz, reggae, musique gnawa, afro-beat... un hymne dansant au métissage.
Pour se souvenir d'où nous sommes, car il semble que les temps actuels sont à l'enfermement.
