JoJo Green’s debut album, The Line, showcases music that expresses struggle but doesn’t hang its head; instead, its expression exemplifies fun yet daring depth. The Line is a collection of progressive funk-jazz rock-pop, or “Pop Fusion*” (a unique genre dubbed by this band) presenting the virtuosity of each musician. During the social distancing period accompanying early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, this band’s energetic, powerhouse live show was halted, and they pressed forward to record a large majority of this album distanced, separately because absolutely nothing could stop this fantastic music from releasing. You’d never know it by the tightness and cohesion to their sound, and their intuitive counterpoint, like a well-oiled machine.
JoJo Green has a sound that will grab listeners right out of their chairs. With strong influences from Motown and Muscle Shoals, this band gives a fresh face to a re-collective sound, easy on the ears, and exciting to the body. Listeners are mesmerized by JoJo Green’s powerhouse vocals mixed with agile woodwinds, shredding guitars, funky bass, and driving drums: a sure re crowd pleaser.
*WHAT IS POP-FUSION? Pop-fusion is JoJo Green’s own genre of combined Americana styles including Funk, Soul, Jazz, Country, and Rock. It’s like a potluck for ears and relates to every listener — the best of all worlds. By mixing styles, they continuously challenge themselves to be the best musicians they can be, on top of their game for every performance.
