Cat Toren's HUMAN KIND (2017)

Cat Toren leads a dynamic new project influenced by the free-form, socially conscious jazz of the late '60s as well as today’s resurgent civil rights movement. The album has received critically acclaimed reviews such as “A powerful recording” - Bandcamp Daily (The Best New Jazz on Bandcamp) and “Cat Toren should be a household name. Incredible music for 2017” - UK Vibe. The group has toured the Mid-West, New York area and Western Canada promoting the album and it’s message. Jazz, being both music of expression and of the people, has a legacy of standing up for civil rights issues. Keeping with this tradition, proceeds of the album are donated to the American Civil Liberties Union. The album has sold in over seven countries thus far.
