“Third World Love’s stunning second U.S
. release manages to combine downtown scene seriousness of purpose with the booty-shaking rhythms of a jazz-jam band…far greater than the sum of its parts, “New Blues” is a rare hybrid: jazz for the brain, heart and feet. – Kevin R. Convey, Boston Herald
**** “…there is a fascinating pallete in use, with unusual time signatures, clever cultural borrowings and an interweaving of exotic and familiar elements as a back drop for unfettered improvisation. New Blues…is a perfect example of this. ” – David French, Downbeat magazine
New Blues is the fourth release from International Jazz supergroup Third World Love. The band has been drawing dancing-in-the-isles-crowds to its high energy performances in Europe and the Middle-East with its special blend of Jazz, African, and Middle Eastern music. On this release, Avishai Cohen, Yonatan Avishai, Omer Avital and Daniel Freedman explore a more contemplative mood.
