THREE WISE MONKEYS

Born:

A WORD FROM THE WISE... Ten years in and still chasing that “sound”. That elusive gold that floats in the ether, waiting for that moment when the alchemist can summon the mystic power of creativity and shape the vibrations into form. Our latest interpretation of the grand intelligence into a musical unified theory is manifested on the ISOLATION EP. Recorded pristinely in isolation at 196kHz on a state of the art AVID desk. The transparent production bathes the listener in the frequency, capturing instinct vs intelligence. An elegant document tracing the endeavour and the pursuit of that elusive “sound”. Kypo, Alex & Brendon

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
