Ben Harper has teamed with renowned harmonica master Charlie Musselwhite to create Get Up! — a piercing song-cycle of struggle and heart. Recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Harper, Get Up! is his 12th studio album and first new recording since 2011’s Give Till It’s Gone. A striking mix of blues, gospel, roots and R&B, Get Up! features ten vivid musical character studies, skillfully rendered in cinematic detail, all written or co-written by Harper. Charlie Musselwhite’s searing point/counter-point harmonica accentuates Harper’s vocals throughout Get Up!, tying its songs together into a cohesive musical whole. The band, including Jason Mozersky, guitar; Jesse Ingalls, bass; Jordan Richardson, drums; along with Ben Harper on vocals, guitar and slide guitar; plays with economical grit, lending the songs true understanding and authority. And just check out that cover: Those are some bad lookin’ mofos… And Get Up! sounds as cool as they look. Dig.
