Ego Mondo is sort of a psychedelic, post-apocalyptic hip-hop concept, with supernatural energy and powerful, haunting vocals. It's a new project from the industrial-strength trio of Gary Novak (drums), Tim Lefebvre (electric bass) and Scott Kinsey on keyboards. Plus, special guest singer/rapper Kokayi and contributions from Michael Landau, Jason Lindner, Rachel Eckroth, Alan Hertz and Troy Ziegler. While you're likely familiar with some of these musicians, Ego Mondo will take you places you haven't been.
The ARC Trio album features a core lineup of electric bass icon Jimmy Haslip (Yellowjackets, Allan Holdsworth, Jing Chi), Scott Kinsey on keyboards and the phenomenal Hungarian drummer Gergö Borlai. Also appearing are two more of the world’s great drummers, Vinnie Colaiuta and Gary Novak, as well as Steve Tavaglione (saxophone, flute and EWI) and Judd Miller (EVI). The result is a unique and exciting adventure in modern electric jazz. Available in digital download and physical CD formats.
With No Sleep, Kinsey teams up with the phenomenal East Indian vocalist and electric bassist Naina Kundu to produce an utterly unique interpretation of modern pop hits from the likes of Janet Jackson, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift and even Jaco Pastorius. Meanwhile, Kinsey and Kundu’s stunning compositions reflect an eclectic mix of influences from Moonchild to Flora Purim, Hiatus Kaiyote, Gretchen Parlato and José James. Features appearances by Nir Felder (Snarky Puppy), Louis Cole (Knower), Gary Novak (Chick Corea) and many more. Now available as both digital download and physical CD.
A true supergroup, Human Element returns with their first recording since the band's mind-boggling debut in 2011. You are in You is another flying leap forward in the realm of electric jazz, featuring Scott Kinsey on keyboards along with the unique electric bass of Matthew Garrison, drummer extraordinaire Gary Novak and ethereal percussion / vocals from Arto Tuncboyaciyan. Also available as both digital download and physical CD.
