In its most basic function, the music that makes up Sonic Creed serves as a mirror to African American life in the here and now. It explores the history, legacy, struggles, and joys of the Black community, speaking to all of it at once through sound and sentiment.

Sonic Creed arrives almost a decade after this groove outfit's last showing—Urbanus (Concord, 2009)—but the time away hasn't hurt the band. If anything, Blackout has become a more limber group capable of carving out more capacious settings. With key personnel holdovers like drummer Terreon Gully and saxophonist Casey Benjamin, well-suited Blackout newcomers such as pianist James Francies and bassist Joshua Crumbly, and a handful of notable guests, there are new worlds of possibility to be found within this realm.

Opening with an updated take on Bobby Timmons' "Dat Dere," Harris and company immediately nod to Art Blakey's place in the pantheon while painting a funky futurist's vision. The sophisticated yet earhty edges of that opener hearken back to many of Urbanus' signatures, but what follows demonstrates the aforementioned wider gaze: "Chasin' Kendall," a lightly soulful Harris original written for the vibraphonist's two sons, rides peacefully atop a singsong bass line; "Let's Take A Trip To The Sky" is pure loving reverie, a slow jam written for Harris' wife that highlights guest vocalist Jean Baylor's soothing pipes; Horace Silver's "The Cape Verdean Blues," a number that Harris once arranged for the SFJAZZ Collective during his tenure with that super band, bounces, swerves, and shimmers in all the right ways; and album centerpiece "Go" gives Wayne Shorter his due by providing some unexpected turns while also maintaining a prescribed outlook.
