EFMM proudly presents two upcoming releases by composer Jason Kocol. MrKocol (huhuh) brings forth 5 contrasting pieces, both stylistically and recording-wise, on the appropriately titled V. From solo improvisation to band performance to symphonic orchestra composition, he demonstrates the ever-changing role of the composer in several contexts. Could he not? Apparently unso.

Showcasing several pieces drawing from multi-ethnic musical styles (or not), his second release, From That One Country, is being released alongside V. This record has it all, or will at least fool you into thinking it does, borrowing from tango, klezmer, eastern Indian and Mexican music, plus more! It just goes to show that you don't have to live there to know the tunes. You know..."there."
