About the Album

Kari van der Kloot’s album The Architects lives somewhere in the space between jazz and folk. Composed by Kari van der Kloot (including a setting of an e.e. cummings poem), the music glides seamlessly between intricately arranged ensemble playing and lush layers of vocals and violins, to moments of improvised abandon. Kari has an innate skill for crafting approachable melodies that belie the depth and complexities of her compositions. This album features a stellar cast of New York based musicians: violinist Lisanne Tremblay, pianist/synth player Jamie Reynolds, bassist Gary Wang and drummer Nathan Ellman-Bell. A working band since early 2018, the five musicians of The Architects establish an atmosphere of trust throughout the album—each musician’s individual voice shines through clearly in each song while weaving a multi-layered collage together. With a clear, confident and mature tone, Kari vulnerably lays it all on the line. Many of the songs on The Architects are about searching and growing. With deeply personal lyrics, Kari eloquently details the struggle and frustration of trying to break free of our self-constructed boxes. The first single from the album, “Same Song” is written in the form of a palindrome and details the feeling of being trapped in a cycle. The album’s title track deals with the aftermath, when all of our constructs and artifices have crumbled. The second single and video, “Holding Pattern” reveals a more hopeful slant, depicting the beginning of a long distance relationship. The Architects was released on Friday, June 5th 2020 on Next Level Records.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
