Mother Earth - The People Tree



From the Acid Jazz stables, Mother Earth could almost be described as the Small Faces for a new generation: uplifting organs and body-moving bass carve a steady groove that carries a poignant message of harmony and peace.

Their love for Steve Marriott and the Small Faces is apparent on "Dragster", a vocal rendition of their guitar funk instrumental originally from the "Grow Your Own" EP.

The Modfather and the Samba King join the band on "Mr. Freedom" when Paul Weller meets Snowboy for a latin rock extravaganza.

The pace slows for the beautifully moving "Jesse" a tale of unrequited love and guardian angels that is filled with tearful strings and gospel harmonies.

When an album can boast a number of guest appearances, including James Taylor (without his Quartet), it's hard to imagine a time or place where The People Tree is not an essential for any devotee of original Acid Jazz.

What is Acid Jazz?

Acid jazz (also known as club jazz) is a musical genre that combines elements of soul music, funk, disco, particularly looping beats and modal harmony. It developed over the 1980s and 1990s and could be seen as tacking the sound of jazz-funk onto electronic dance/pop music.

The compositions of groups such as The Brand New Heavies and Incognito often feature chord structures usually associated with Jazz music. The Heavies in particular were known in their early years for beginning their songs as catchy pop and rapidly steering them into jazz territory before "resolving" the composition and thus not losing any pop listeners but successfully "exposing" them to jazz elements in "baby steps".

The acid jazz "movement" is also seen as a "revival" of jazz-funk or jazz fusion or soul jazz by leading DJs such as Norman Jay or Gilles Peterson or Patrick Forge, also known as "rare groove crate diggers".
