We are honored to announce that trumpeter par excellence Russell Gunn has joined the Ropeadope family. Russell brings a unique perspective as he has developed a deep sense of the history of Jazz while firmly engrained with Hip-Hop sensibility. The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra is a not just a big band - it is a labor of love for Russell and the players, and for over a year they have been carefully crafting the sound and the compositions that make up their new release - Get It How You Live. With a powerful sound, RKJO comes out swinging, adding in signature performances from Theo Croker, Dionne Farris, and Saunders Sermons. The record hits on July 20, and preorder is all set right here.
‘Get It How You Live is about explaining yourself in an honest way – when you open your mouth it has to be genuine’ (Russell Gunn)
