‘Resistance’ is keyboardist, vocalist, composer, producer and arranger Brandon Coleman’s second album and the regular member of Kamasi Washington’s band serves up a superb hybrid of influences on this grower of an album. The vocals major on the use of the vocoder that was an often used effect on early 80s boogie (think Herbie Hancock) and the vibe of the set has that throwback feel with jazz, disco, boogie, R&B, electro, soul and Funk all thrown into Coleman’s musically cosmic pot. The disco swagger of ‘Live For Today’, the sassy ‘All Around The World’ and the nu-disco of ‘Addiction’ are highlights. N’Dambi features on the sparkling, soaring mid tempo ‘Sundae’ while thematic feel of ‘Resistance’ brings to mind the expansive, spiritual jazz of label-mate and friend Kamasi Washington. The lazy ‘Reach For The Stars’ again combines that low slung groove with multi-layered vocals that make the track soar while the angular boogie of ‘Love’ is another dancefloor tune.
