Bassist Nicholas Krolak inspires listeners to find and use one’s voice to impact the world around oneself with his sophomore album, “Voice = Power.” Atmospheric hard-bop pulse, ambient harmonic structure, and abstract lyrics coalesce into the album. Backed by some of the best musicians on the Philly scene, Krolak’s vision reaches back to his ancestors and forward to the future being created today. Recorded live at Rittenhouse Sound Works in Philadelphia, PA, capturing the intensity and spontaneity of the moment. Nicholas Krolak sees one’s artistic voice as having the potential to carry power – to uplift, to inspire, and to create thoughtful and meaningful change. Krolak’s writing stems from the position of a strong intersectionality and correlation between nature and jazz, through schemas of sustainability, preservation, and meditative deep listening. Through Voice = Power, Nicholas Krolak reminds us of the beauty of looking ahead responsibly while preserving and sustaining what lies behind.
