The New Double-Album!
Almost a decade after their last studio album, the Mandoki Soulmates now release their new double-concept-album „Living In The Gap + Hungarian Pictures“ on 11. October 2019. With their socio-political relevant Songs the Soulmates take a stand against the concerning developments and challenges of our times. The new ProgRock Suite „Hungarian Pictures“ based on compositions of Béla Bartók is a kind of re-invention of progressive JazzRock with the sound of today allowing for extensive, virtuous improvisations.
It is the realization of a mutual vision of Leslie Mandoki and Greg Lake which they started working on years ago. As Leslie stated: „We have always been extremely ambitious and this concept album will not only be our most ambitious but, as we think, also become our best one yet.“ This band is pure sophisticated JazzRock, or as Greg Lake (Emerson, Lake & Palmer) put it: “One of the best bands you will ever hear!”
