The Award winning jazz collective, Skyjack, featuring some of the most sought-after jazz stars from South Africa and Switzerland, will release their sophomore album The Hunter in South Africa with a gig this Sunday 4 November at Kwa Sec, Ny 138 no.52 Gugulethu.
The band comprises of three members from South Africa and two from Switzerland. All critically-acclaimed in their own right. On the rare occasion that the full band is able to convene, each member contributes compositions to the project, which is then performed by the collective.
The band recorded their debut self-titled album in Switzerland in 2015, which received rave reviews across the globe. Their new release, The Hunter was recorded in Maur, Switzerland in early 2018, at a studio that had the honor of hosting the likes of Tina Turner and Prince in previous years.
The tour comprises of eight show dates, ranging from free shows and jazz festivals to more formal performances at highly regarded venues in multiple cities.
