ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Wednesday, February 10th 2010 - Tucson Weekly
Soundbites
by Stephen Seigel

REGGAE WITH A HINT OF GYPSY

Planet Jam doesn't play straight-up reggae; instead, they infuse it with strains of various types of world music, most often Eastern European gypsy music. In other words, Bob Marley this ain't (although he does get a shout-out on "Even Higher"), even if they address similar political and sociopolitical issues.

"Disobey," which opens the album, contains some of that gypsy flavor in the form of a keyboard melody that runs between the song's verses. "Crying Wolf," which places gypsy accents over a cool, Caribbean-inspired vibe, is a pop-reggae tune that features searing guitar-key runs that mimic the sound of dual lead guitars. "Conscious Revolution" is as much jazz as it is reggae, with some delightful playing from Abramson; the music has a slight Steely Dan feel to it, though you'd sure as hell never catch the lyrics "nothing can stop the conscious revolution" coming out of Donald Fagen's mouth. Meanwhile, "The Riot," which features a killer chorus that somehow reminds of '80s British pop, is the most fun song on the disc, even as the lyrics are about tearing down Babylon.

"Tucson's finest straight-up reggae band ...
...Traditional, with a social conscience."

"From Arizona, to Timisoara"

..."Planet Jam is considered to be emblamatic of the new fusion between eastern and western cultures."

Reggae Rhythms with Planet Jam

"Saturday night on the terrace of the Cafe Papillon, music lovers and the people that just happened to be passing by had the opportunity to enjoy a very special event: The music of American band Planet Jam, with a mix of roots reggae combined with Balcanic sounds and other goodies.

The band has its roots in our country and their music represents a fusion between east and west with reggae, gypsy, rock and roots influences."
