.why - what sounds like a political agenda or a deeper quest of meaning of the six Cologne-based musicians in the first place, is much more unpretentious and simpler explained. The second album of MAKKRO sounds different, the music is fresh and lacks banal genre definitions. An ocean of little colored lights and lamps, analog synthesizers all over the place and soft-golden instruments point to the new sound of MAKKRO.
Jazz is the playground to create and connect new things. Why? - Why should MAKKRO define itself?! There’s a new album out, that’s engraved by very personal taste, unbound by normed parameters.
It is the rhythmic-harmonic band sound paired with acoustic-electronic elements that makes .why an outstanding album.
