This is one of those unique moments in Jammerzine where we get to see those magics moments in every band or artists future legacy. We see the diversity in the playing and the panache in the presentation.
And, with that said, we see seven examples of said diversity within x-blu. It goes beyond the recent lineup additions and the natural progression musically. It’s what happens when you take the seeds of independent talents and sow the seeds into a collective fruit.
