Turning the spotlight onto the diverse color spectrum of modern jazz music, "Colour Theory" is a compilation that unites some of the world's most interesting jazz composers, breathing fresh new life into the genre. Presented in a deluxe gatefold jacket on heavy-weight orange vinyl, this double LP release features a myriad of perspectives on today's jazz scene: the spiritually infused works of iconic Brazilian jazz pianist Amaro Freitas, the otherworldly psychedelic sounds of Italian jazz drummer Tommaso Cappellato, the solo works of UK keyboardist Dominic J Marshall (Cinematic Orchestra), the exciting electronic infusion of US-based Keeth and Mad Keys, the alternate take on '70s jazz vibes from Zac Colwell (Of Montreal, Fancy Colors), and the imaginative J-Jazz stylings from Tokyo's Kazumi Kaneda.

We are honored to gather together these boundary-pushing artists and share their kaleidoscope of sounds and influences with the world. We're all just getting started!
