Precious Energy is the most recent project from Barney McAll which fuses all Barney’s band-stand experience with the likes of Gary Bartz, Sia, Dewey Redman, Maceo Parker, Billy Harper and Fred Wesley into a hybrid of avante-funk, soul and improvisation.
“I wanted to make an album that spoke to positivity, sun rays and love during the pandemic,when all these things seemed to be on some kind of cosmic precipice. Blending my mentor Gary Bartz with some of the sounds and players I have been delving into of late, has created the happiest deepest album I have ever made”. – Barney McAll
“It is a magnum opus that belongs alongside the kaleidoscopic 21st century jazz-inspired sounds emerging from London, Chicago, and Los Angeles, though it towers above most of them.” - ALLMUSIC.COM
GODTET play hypnotic improvised instrumental music taking listeners on psychedelic, trancelike journeys which are “a very honest document on letting players play”.
GODTET is a true band where “you can’t deny the tangible sense of cohesion amongst the players, their interaction with each other is both subtle and electrifying”(4ZZZ Radio).
Coming from backgrounds as disparate as their personalities, it is the listening and chemistry between each of its 5 uninterchangeable members that explains how GODTET’s sum is greater than that of its parts.
