Drummer/composer/arranger Jacek Kochan’s new album “Occupational Hazard” is remarkable on a number of fronts. Not only does it represent the prodigious Montreal musician’s 22nd release as a leader, it’s also his most stylistically daring project to date.
Combining elements of acoustic and electric jazz, rock, and contemporary improvised music, it weaves rhythms and harmonies from around the world into an eclectic and infectious mix sure to please the ears of any adventurous listener. Conveyed by a cast that includes many of the finest musicians working today, Occupational Hazard is musical tour de force.
