The debut solo album from dynamic jazz bassist Michael Janisch features an all-star cast of new generation jazz musicians.
The music mixes contemporary sounds of latin, fusion, drum and bass, with the soulful elements of jazz's rich history, including a thrilling duet between Janisch and Grammy Award nominated drummer, Johnathan Blake, on John Coltrane's 'Moment's Notice.'
According to Jazz Journal Magazine, 'Purpose Built seamlessly marries the highest virtues of jazz - intricate yet purposeful rhythm, colorful harmonic language, compelling melody and high-level improvisation together with those often underused qualities of light and shade... a perfect blend of tradition and modernity.'
