The Motet New Album Release

The Motet

Packed with all new material and masterfully produced by drummer Dave Watts, The Motet's highly anticipated studio release, Dig Deep, will be celebrated in true Motet fashion with three CD release parties in Colorado starting July 9. Dig Deep is a tapestry of sound that pushes the expectations of any listener who is familiar with the band's signature mix of Afrobeat, electronica, funk, and jazz. Bay Area funksters Albino! will join The Motet for the three night party, which opens at the Boulder Theater on July 9, moves south to Cervantes' Masterpiece in Denver on July 10, and then wraps up at Mishawaka Amphitheatre in Bellvue, CO on July 11.

Dig Deep presents The Motet revisited and refreshed, showcasing 12 great musicians who have contributed to the band over the years. Much of the material is geared toward the studio setting rather than their famed live shows, which is evident in Watts' rich production of interweaving rhythms and melodies. In addition, every song on the 11-track album expresses the talents of these great musicians and plays well to the roots of the band's signature sound.

The record will be available at the shows for the low price of $1 and will be made available for download on the band's MySpace page.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
