Fakta With the album STAR PEOPLE NATION, young trumpet star Theo Croker builds a bridge between the past, today, and tomorrow's jazz. From the swinging "The Messenger," to the rhythmic explorations of "Alkebulan," to the soulful and hip "Understand Yourself (feat. Chronixx)" which merges African percussion, American horns, and Caribbean flavor, STAR PEOPLE NATION Croker's third full-length release showcases the trumpeter, producer, arranger, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist at his most pure, poetic, passionate, and powerful. For Croker STAR PEOPLE NATION is a moment of arrival and he had some specific goals in mind while making this album. He wanted to achieve a certain standard technically as a musician while having the sonic clarity of an electronic or pop album where it's clear, but intense. The album also needed to have the groove and thump of hip-hop and rap, the sensuality and color of R&B, and finally the harmony, depth, intellectual stimulation and intricacy of jazz. The self-produced album features Croker on trumpet, keys/synths, programming and background vocals alongside a core band comprised of Irwin Hall (reeds), Michael King (piano, keys), Eric Wheeler (bass) and Kassa Overall (drums, percussion) with special guests Rose Gold, ELEW, Eric Harland and Chronixx to round out the line-up.
