Black - Epic Wonderland LP (2021), 12" Vinyl with booklet, incl downloadcode
The new album 'Epic Wonderland' by the Mannheim band 'Black Project' is denser, deeper, more beautiful, darker and bigger than the band's previous releases. You may call it 'epic'.
Rock and jazz, improvisation and groove, reflection and absent-mindedness, dance and trance. Anything goes in music where sense and reason unite in a particularly joyful way. Brimming with substance, escalations and reveries the Mannheim-based sextet Black Project confidently dares to navigate the cliffs of fusion jazz and redefines jazz rock. Their sound is clearly band music. The product of a collective full of refined sound constellations, elastic vitality and powerful interplay. An igniting spark.
For the recording of ‘Epic Wonderland’, the Black Project invited vocalists from the 4 x 4 Women's Choir at the University of Education Heidelberg to the studio for an additional sound range. The album cover design by painter Rainer Steve Kaufmann is a work of art in its own right.
