Ego Mondo with special guest Kokayi+Aaron Parks Little Big
Ego Mondo is a new band comprised of Gary Novak, Scott Kinsey and Tim Lefebvre. The new album “End of Daze” (to be released on Ropeadope Records) features guests Kokayi, Troy Zeigler, Michael Landau, Jason Lindner, Rachel Eckroth.
Aaron Parks Little Big, the new Ropeadope album from the acclaimed pianist, keyboardist and composer, is at once the culmination of his brilliant early career and the long-awaited follow-up to his Blue Note Records debut, Invisible Cinema. That 2008 release, with its gorgeously melodic writing and improvising and deft use of indie-rock, electronica and hip-hop elements, established Parks as one of the most gifted and original young voices in jazz. “This is the natural successor to that record,” says the New York-based artist, 34. “It’s taking the ideas of that project and doubling down on them—fully committing to that direction.”
