Keyboard master Scott Kinsey and vocal phenom Mer Sal form a unique and organic musical union, brimming with radiance and uncommon depth, on Adjustments.

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.
