    It is no surprise that venues across the globe are filled when Croker and his dynamo band hits the stage: they are nothing short of sensational. DownBeat raved Crocker’s newest album, Escape Velocity, is “an amazing album of poise, power and ambition. Croker is an incredibly talented artist that we will be listening to for a very long time!” He explores the ranges of jazz crossover sounds (hip hop, rap, funk and electronica), while also being masterful in his exploration and reinterpretation of classic jazz standards.
