Making Love to the Dark Ages

  • Making Love to the Dark Ages

Burnt Sugar’s first studio recording in 5 years in celebration of the band’s 10 year anniversary. A tasty mix of history and contemporary. A spicy blend of jazz, improv, innovation and composition.
A cornucopia of sound embedded in the process of creativity: hot, sweet, and a little burnt on the edges.

“Tate works with a huge array of musicians on Making Love to the Dark Ages, and he knows how to use them. Trumpeter Lewis “Flip” Barnes Jr. turns in a solo on “Chains and Water” that grows more and more discordant before the tune takes on a hip-hop bent that becomes an all-out jam in the long middle section—which, in turn, leads into a brief final section of Ellington-inspired swing. (Whew.)”
