"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.

"Surprisingly, the most interesting visitor from the other side of the Atlantic turned out to be the 15-membered Burnt Sugar which, with its two vocalist virtuosos, is not easy to describe. This post-everything fusion orchestra offered depth and surprises, and luckily most of the notions did not get lost in the big mass of sound." - Mikko Majander / Uutispäivä Demari

"The 15-membered Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber from New York, founded by the young Greg Tate, must be elevated to the big band elite. The sparkling sounds, with a strong, dark rhythm, crowned the concert of the Sunday afternoon." - Jouko Huru / Kansan Uutiset

In true Burnt Sugar style the release of More Than Posthuman, their most vocal-centric studio project, occurred as the live band began to mutate into a horn riddled beast. The group now features a full-on brass and wind section that includes 2 bari, 2 alto, and 2 tenor saxophones, trumpet, trombone, bass clarinet, flute and occasionally even tuba and didgeridoo.

2007 has already seen the release of a Best-Of collections by Burnt Sugar comprised of material from all 12 of their discs and another live album from a stellar show at Minneapolis' Walker Arts Center in 2005 is in the works to be released by the end of the year.

On and on the Sugar flows....

Too bad indeed. Heady and heavy is the forecast for tomorrow. Seasonal highs and reasonable lows.

There will be 10 players, though we have had 15+ on stage before.
