For his third album for Far Out Recordings, London based multi-instrumentalist and one of Europe’s finest saxophonists Sean Khan ventured to Rio de Janeiro to collaborate with iconic Brazilian polymath Hermeto Pascoal. Taking its title from the escaped slave settlement ‘Palmares’ in the Northeast of Brazil during the 1600s, Palmares Fantasy is Khan’s utopian jazz message for the world, and features Azymuth drummer Ivan ‘Mamao’ Conti, bassist Paulo Russo, guitarist Jim Mullen, and guest vocals from Brazilian chanteuse Sabrina Malheiros, and Cinematic Orchestra frontwoman Heidi Vogel.
Today Sean Khan announces a new single from the album. Watch the video for 'Moment of Collapse' (ft. Heidi Vogel), recorded in London with Sean’s UK band, and dive into Khan's poignant study on the uncertainties of modern day civilisation. Palmares Fantasy feat. Hermeto Pascoal will be released on vinyl CD and digitally on 11th May 2018 via Far Out Recordings. Pre-order here.
