MooK Ensemble – Music Of Our Kind, Vol. 2
From the mind of Italian composer and guitarist Giovanni Cacioppo, this is an LP of exotic delights, drawing inspiration from a myriad of musical traditions from across the world, informed by a jazz approach to ensemble playing and improvisation. Skittering rhythms, radical melodies and curious forms coalesce to make this a worthy successor to their 2016 début, Volume 1.
