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.

“With a name like Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, Greg Tate’s latest project conjures up everything from funk, jazz and rock to the avant-garde world of Sun Ra and the hard-hitting hip-hop of the Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Yet when the band delves into the three-part album opener, “Chains and Water,” they first hit you with a blend of Delta blues and modern soul, propelled by the saucy vocals of Lisala”
