About the Album

Drummer/composer/arranger Jacek Kochan’s new album Occupational Hazard is remarkable on a number of fronts. Not only does it represent the prodigious Montreal musician’s 22nd release as a leader, it’s also his most stylistically daring project to date. Combining elements of acoustic and electric jazz, rock, and contemporary improvised music, it weaves rhythms and harmonies from around the world into an eclectic and infectious mix sure to please the ears of any adventurous listener. Conveyed by a cast that includes many of the finest musicians working today, Occupational Hazard is musical tour de force. The album was released worldwide on Friday, March 13th, 2020.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
