Following in the tradition of such renegade composers as Frank Zappa, Charles Mingus, Igor Stravinsky and Harrison BertwhistleDave Morecroft seeks a spot in the musical firmament that is decidedly left of center. And as keyboardist and principal composer for the edgy London-based avant-funk-jazz quintet WorldService Project, he is striking a blow upside the head of musical complacency.

On ‘For King & Country’, the group’s RareNoise debut and third release overall (after ‘Relentless‘ in 2010 and ‘Fire In A Pet Shop‘ in 2013), the powerhouse aggregation cuts across stylistic boundaries with impunity and a decided ‘punk-jazz’ attitude.
