Double Time Jazz feat. Theo Croker
May 11, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0$22.50
Theo Croker’s 2016 release “Escape Velocity” is ranked the #1 Jazz Album in the UK by Echoes Magazine. The accolades continue worldwide with iTunes (Global), The Observer (US) and others naming the album as one of the Top Jazz albums of 2016. With a global spotlight release on iTunes and Amazon, now over 1.5 million cumulative streams on Spotify, and nearly 1 million streams for the track “No Escape from Bliss” it is clear that listeners agree. Upon the album’s release, The Wall Street Journal heralded the album as “ timeless and of-themoment”. His live performances, the Huffington Post lauded Croker’s band DVRKFUNK, saying they were “a tight front line that weave in serpentine precision and are backed by a powerful rhythm section that pushes the groove.” Croker recently lent his inimitable talents as composer, arranger and musician to J. Cole’s latest release on title track “4 Your Eyez Only”, as well as “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “Ville Mentality”. He is also featured on Common’s newest album, “Black America Again.” This presentation of Theo Croker & StarNation for the Jazz Touring Network is made possible through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Art’s Regional Touring Program.
