One of my favorite albums! The density of the two drum setup is just amazing. In many cases two drums lead to overcrowded soundschemes but not in this case. Everything is on point! Just awesome!
First of all, the cover alone is worth the purchase. But I purchased this record based on one song alone! and then I was determined to listen to the rest of the record on LP and support this band in any way possible!
Favorite track: Wasi.
"Kokoroko" is an impressive high-energy album that captures all of the talent and excitement of the current UK Jazz scene. The playing is fantastic, and the band is incredibly tight, incredibly strong. Highly recommended... rikm
Such a beautifully crafted album. Such intense rich weaving of sounds and feelings. It’s one of those albums you are happy to share at the same time want to keep as a personal secret.
Amazing stuff by Mr Halsall. I suggest anyone reading this to spend some time in his early stuff too. Song to Charlie is monumental. il-berts
