JAZZANOVA's Sonar Kollektiv label celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2007. They took the occasion to form the SONAR KOLLEKTIV ORCHESTER - a Sonar Kollektiv super-group made up of label artists and friends. This ensemble has 15 members including 3 vocalists, 4 strings, 3 horns and a full rhythm section. All in all it truly is a star studded line-up of only the most highly skilled musicians around. With a team of musicians like this you would expect some pretty impressive results, and the SKO sound is indeed nothing less than exceptional. Such a creative new collaborative project from some of Sonar Kollektiv's finest really is a must have for fans of the label and the vibrant scene of musicians that has grown up around it since being founded by JAZZANOVA over ten years ago. SKO is a truly special and original project which manages to celebrate the wealth of great music that is the Sonar Kollektiv back catalogue by reworking previously released tunes in the context of an orchestra. As anyone who saw their live premiere at the Sonar Kollektiv festival in TAPE CLUB, Berlin during POPKOMM last year will know, the SONAR KOLLEKTIV ORCHESTER sound just as fresh live on stage as they do on record.
