About the album

For their self-titled second album, Dutch jazz trio Kapok went looking for a space that could provide the right acoustics for their unique sound. They ended up in 13th-century Beverweerd Castle, that once sheltered Napoleon and is now inhabited by ex-art forger Geert-Jan Jansen. He gave the band access to the entire castle, and after installing a mobile studio, Kapok recorded the album in two weeks, surrounded by hundreds of paintings.

In contrast to the spacious, dreamy quality of their debut album Flatlands, Kapok has become an energetic album filled with instrumental songs influenced by roots music, indie rock and free jazz. There is lots of room for improvisation, and the live experience gained by the band over the past two years is constantly in evidence.

Kapok is a young and unusual trio. The band combines elements from very different genres and traditions: the energy and compact form of pop and funk; the grooves and percussion of roots music; the interaction and abstract sounds of free improvisation; and the phrasing and harmonies of jazz.

Using all these elements, Kapok creates music that is new and recognisable at the same time, and keeps pulling the rug out from under the listener's feet.
