EDITORS’ NOTES

A jazz trio welcomed into concert halls and dance music festivals alike, GoGo Penguin’s third album seeps across genres including classical, trip-hop and art-rock. There’s an equally bold sense of adventure and spread to the dynamics. Songs often begin with drums, bass and piano gently comparing ideas until interlocking into a funk gallop (“All Res”) or gradually harmonizing frantic beats with contemplative piano riffs (“Smarra”, “Protest”). It’s these creative, counterintuitive journeys that make Man Made Object so engrossing.

Jeez, these guys are fascinating. Jazz as it should be - innovative, challenging and dreamy.

Superb and Sublime

Mind boggeling stuff again, this band is fast becoming a thing of legend, only thing left to do is see them live.
O and the bass... wow! Worth every penny

About GoGo Penguin

Experimental jazz piano trio GoGo Penguin were formed in Manchester, England in 2012 by pianist Chris Illingworth, bassist Nick Blacka, and drummer Rob Turner. Mixing melodic landscapes with dynamic skittering beats and electronic elements, the band creates a heady blend that owes as much to Massive Attack and Brian Eno as to traditional jazz or classical. They released a pair of albums on the Gondwana label, announcing themselves with 2012's Fanfares, then expanding their sonic scope with 2014's v2.0, the latter of which earned them a Mercury Prize nomination. In early 2015, they struck a deal with Blue Note Records and began recording their third LP. The album -- titled Man Made Object -- arrived in early 2016. The group's second effort for the label -- A Humdrum Star -- was released in February 2018. ~ Timothy Monger
