After a four-year break that followed Zombi’s beloved last album Escape Velocity, the American instrumental duo reclaims its rightful role as space rock overlords with Shape Shift. The album, self-produced by the band, is darker, heavier and more dynamic than previous works and more representative of the duo’s live shows; a fitting return to the roots.

This album is quite a surprise! The 25-strong mixed Afro-American gospel group from the San Francisco Bay area expands the traditional black gospel/spiritual lexicon with rich modern harmonies and sophisticated counterpoint. Every piece presents a unique, modern, multi-dimensional interpretation of the original gospel. For the most part the choir sings a cappella, but on four pieces a quartet of crack West Coast jazz musicians in varying groupings accompany The Keynotes. They include pianist George Cables, famous for his work with Frank Zappa as well as a myriad of successful fusion albums, and saxophonist/flutist Hadley Caliman, known for his work with Freddie Hubbard and Gerald Wilson, among others.

Will Rast (Antibalas, Thievery Corporation, Ocote Soul Sounds) and The Funk Ark grab the best parts from some of the most American genres of music. There’s the bluegrass-like slide guitar, the precision lines from fusion jazz, and of course, the locked down thick pocket taken from the style of music they bare in their name. With all of this comes the sophistication and swagger that one would expect from a group so steeped in these expansive musical traditions.

Kriegel’s compositions helped create the quartet’s unique sound, encompassing jazz, funk, psychedelia, avant-garde, and ethno.
