REBELLUM: Burnt Sugar Arkestra’s funk & roll splinter cell (NYC)
“A multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis” On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix’ moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland.” – David Fricke/Rolling Stone
REBELLUM is Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber’s funk & roll splinter-cell on tour to promote their new release, “The Darknuss.”
Gripping the sum of REBELLUM’s parts demands one apprehends these factions: The two-part super fly vocal frontline of Mikel Banks & Shelley Nicole; those ace riddim section companeras, The Buckeye Bass Mack Jared Michael Nickerson & Straight-Up Caveman drummer, Matsu; not to mention Valerie June Guitar Hero Ben Tyree, Bari Sax Goddess for TVOR & Nick Waterhouse, “Moist” Paula Henderson, William Parker Trumpeter of Choice Lewis ‘Flip’Barnes and Vernon Reid Keyboard Liberator, Leon Gruenbaum.
