New single “Hope” is the second track extracted from Australian spiritual jazz ensemble Menagerie‘s highly anticipated third album “Many Worlds”, to be released January 15th 2021 on esteemed U.K label Freestyle Records.
“Hope” carries forward the sound of spiritual jazz into the 21st century, with its epic vocal harmonies and melodic fanfare, it is an uplifting anthem for this period of global worldwide upheaval and uncertainty.
Menagerie is the Melbourne-based jazz ensemble founded by producer, songwriter, guitarist, DJ and recording artist Lance Ferguson, also the driving force behind The Bamboos, Lanu, Rare Groove Spectrum and Machines Always Win.
Menagerie ‘s debut album “They Shall Inherit” saw the light of day in 2012 via label Tru Thoughts and 2018 saw the release of “The Arrow Of Time” on Freestyle. Inspired by both the post-Coltrane generation of the 70s and the current ‘New Wave Of Jazz’, the album made serious waves internationally in 2018, being championed by the likes of BBC’s Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, Courtney Pine and Don Letts.
