Space Jazz arrives April 21st via Super Best Records. While it's soul and hip-hop backbone is cohesive with Menert's existing catalogue, the new LP is a standing testament to it's creator's musical prowess and ability to seamlessly incorporate a variety of influences. Without regard to custom or trends, Michal Menert shows us what new realms of possibilities open up when we reach for the stars.

'Space Jazz' officially drops one week from today on April 21st! Are you ready?
This last week has been amazing. I've spent time reverse engineering the songs with the Big Band, writing new material, and building a set that really brings my past and our future together. The show at Red Rocks is going to be a million times better than the previous two, simply because the band is getting hours in playing as a band, not just rehearsing the songs. It's been a decade since I was last in a band actively working on new material, and i've missed this feeling immensely. The level of cohesion between the members is leaps and bounds ahead of our past performances, and with the next two weeks to continue building, i can say with confidence that Red Rocks will be the best show I've ever been a part of.

Everything Shines is an ode to long nights spent losing ourselves in the moment. It's a look back at the first taste of everything around us shining, at a feeling we chase for the rest of our lives, a split second of tasting something that lingers on our palette forever.
