There’s an intriguing new album on the horizon, and it’s got a whole bunch of A-list names associated with it. Big Heart Machine has the compositions of Brian Krock, the conducting of Miho Hazama, the production of Darcy James Argue and the music of Charlotte Greve, Kenny Warren, Paul Jones and Yuhan Su among the eighteen musicians contributing to the recording. Based on the two preview tracks available, this is music that is an endless source of personality.
