The 2nd Digital Primitives release (Cooper-Moore, Asif Tsahar, Chad Taylor) digs in deep to fuse a new sound from blues, folk, jazz & funk, with accents from the music's African antecedents.

Digital Primitives (Cooper-Moore / Tsahar / Taylor)
Hum Crackle Pop

Digital Primitives (Cooper-Moore / Tsahar / Taylor) : Hum Crackle Pop (Hopscotch Records)
Label: Hopscotch Records    
Released in: USA    

"Hum Crackle and Pop, the long awaited second release of Digital Primitives forges a group sound that is fresh and unique. Digging deeply to unearth the roots of American music, the trio fuses a new sound from blues, folk, jazz and funk, with accents from the music's African antecedents.

Master musician instrument builder Cooper-Moore is setting the tone with the diddley-bo, twanger, mouth-bo, the fretless bango (your dictionary won't find it but your ears would love it), and Assif Tsahar is free flowing expressive as ever on his tenor Sax and bass clarinet while Chad Taylor ruff's it up pushing the groove deeper and the deeper. Together they tell us a story that is both dramatic and joyful, keeping it always close to the heart."-Hopscotch Records
