Bokante & Metropole Orkest & Jules Buckleye
WHAT HEAT (2LP)
2x12" Vinyl lp UK
Double vinyl release with stamped 3D design on side D.
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. [info from label]
