ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Philadelphia-New York improvisational quartet of Global
illage and their resonant world vision is unleashed from
members and collaborators of Les Nubians, Jazzheads, Elwood,
Sylk130, Spoken Hand Ensemble, Ursula Rucker, Boyz II Men,
Zakir Hussain, King Britt and others.

Chris Cuzme: soprano + tenor sax, didgeridoo, exotic flutes, tibetan bowl
Jim Hamilton: percussion batterie
Tim Motzer: guitars, synth guitar, bass, guitarloops
Dan Sears: trumpet, fluegelhorn, flutes, chordal pipes, and tibetan bowl

The first sessions were largely group improvisations
yielding two wildly divergent CDs. The lush ambience of the
"chill side" is a kind of "Peter Gabriel's Passion meets
ECM". On the "ill side": dark and menacing, an ill-fated
futureworld of ambient punk funk abstraktions ... "tortoise
meets tabla beat science".

Philadelphia City Paper

Sushilove Sessions is a breathtaking potpouri of jazzy, electronic ambience.
Global Illage / Sushilove Sessions
(equal area records)

It's 5 a.m. Sunday morning. You've been out all night
partying only to return home eager to chill out with
a couple friends to soothing electronic soundscapes.
There's nothing more refreshing than packing a bong
and losing yourself in smooth, rinsing ambience and
jazzy grooves. Consisting of members out of Philly
and NYC, from other groups like the Jazzheads, King
Britt's Sylk 130 and Sole Pocket, the foursome
Global Illage consolidates for Sushilove Sessions, a
double disc which tenders two separate excursions in
to live instumental bliss - aptly titled the 'chill side' and 'ill side.' Whether there's a beat or not, Illage manages to find that groove and ride it profoundly. The 'chill' disc is synth driven, chimes-laden, dreamy, somewhat new age and drenched with jazzy undertones from sax solos to sparse guitar licks. Think late Talk Talk, ECM, or Peter Gabriel's soothing side - utterly befitting of radio shows like Star's End or Echoes. The 'ill' disc is a downright jam session with live, laid-back trip-hoppy beats and rhythms, groovy guitar and synth-guitar, heart-riding funky basslines,didgeridoos, flutes and some of the more mind-blowing trumpetsolos you'll ever hear, a la Tortoise, Club d'Elf, or even The Sun Ra Arkestra. Sushilove Sessions is a breathtaking potpouri of jazzy, electronic ambience. There's nothing raw about it.
