Whenever you pop a Gabrielle Roth album into your CD player, you can be certain of one thing - you will be instantly hit by a wave of powerful, relentless rhythms that pulsate with energy waiting to burst free. Few artists have the ability to command rhythms with the sort of ferocity that Roth does; her grooves connect the tribe with the club, pairing primal percussion with elements of rock, electronica and even the occasional jazz edge. JHOOM is all of this and more.
On the percussive front, Roth has all the gears firing here, from the hypnotic, rolling bassline of "Speaking Curves" to the funky pleasure of "Road Rock-It." Chloe Goodchild lends her chant vocals to the title track, and takes center stage on the ambient "On the Other Side of Here," which sounds tailor-made for a yoga session. Vocalist/string player Allison Cornell, bass-player Tony Levin and percussionist Sanga of the Valley are among the other contributors on the album.
Gabrielle Roth & The Mirrors are back with a smoking new album of tripped-out tribal rhythms that send you into a state of trance ecstasy. Jhoom: The Intoxication Of Surrender is an adrenaline rush?a whirl of electrifying tribal grooves that will awaken the spiritual hunger within you while keeping your feet in constant motion. A hypnotic blend of drums, bass, strings, and female chants.
