Gregory Kimbrell A giant. The sound swells to with immensity that feels like it might split the room wide open, exposing us to the wind that sweeps across the dome of the sky. I'd love to hear this entire ensemble perform live and have the world around me, and me with it, physically stirred. Favorite track: Fanm.

Taylor Davalos Holy Jeez! AOTY 2018 for me.

Heavy African groove meets modern jazz and full orchestra. Huge vision with phenomenal execution.

ROWIAL Despite obvious complexities, it's accessible like prime pop. I.m.o. there are 8 pop songs; ok, rather long ones, between 5:17 and 7:50. Some are very groovy & can make you dance. But "analyzing" the very nourishing ingredients - ≤50(?) piece orchestra, 6 voices, middle east & african percussions & strings, mainly acoustic bass & guitars incl. dobro & lap steel - "baking" music that somehow relates to S. Keita, Rokia Traoré & Y. N'Dour - ... WOW! That's really NEW & absolutely COMPELLING.

about

Bokanté: the fresh new group founded by musician and composer Michael League, of Grammy-winning instrumental jazz collective, Snarky Puppy. A super group of players from five countries and four continents, different genders, races and generations working in harmony, celebrating individuality, united in the belief that music should be a voice for the voiceless.

The Metropole Orkest: that multiple Grammy-winning hybrid ensemble, part jazz big band, part symphony orchestra, helmed by feted English conductor Jules Buckley, and based in the Netherlands. The message delivered by Bokanté and the Metropole Orkest, by these two determinedly aware and musically gifted outfits, is laced throughout new album What Heat – and it is urgent. Injustice is raging all around. Look. Notice. Wake up.
