Jaz Coleman Magna Invocatio - A Gnostic Mass for Choir and Orchestra Inspired by the Sublime Music of Killing Joke Limited Vinyl 2LP Set


Lead vocalist of the post-punk band, Killing Joke. As an artist of fierce intellect and purpose, Jaz Coleman – has been driven by twin musical loves: experimental rock and classical music. What Coleman feels is sometimes passed over, however, is the element of “panoramic beauty” underpinning the weight and flow of many of Killing Joke’s songs, the likes of ‘The Raven King’, ‘In Cythera’ and more – an element that fitting orchestration might elevate and underline… Recorded with Russia’s oldest orchestra, the St Petersburg Philharmonic, this stirring body of work taps into the more melodic, uplifting aspects of the KJ musical canon.
