Their music, an example of the current jazz path, presents a repertoire based on original compositions that shows the different influences of these musicians, from jazz to hard-bop, and taking advantage of the textures that a training with this instrumentation can offer. Resulting in a fresh repertoire that reflects their good taste and common influences as composers and instrumentalists. DOWNLOAD
POR ALLÍ VIENE COSTI
This music moves through the mainstream of jazz and among other styles as Hard Bop and Blue Note. The sketch of exposure, solos rotations and recapitulation is classic.
Primavera valenciana is blue-bossa, ballad with Brazilian nuance that gives space and climate to Joe Henderson. De Quart a Picassent, Perpiñán and Serra's origins, it is an funny mix of the instruments and close to boogaloo and funky styles. Voluntat is the theme with the most hard pulse, it is presented with a balance of blue and continues in an intense twist that breathes Coltrane in quartet. The Pretender is a rhythm of tap and young spirit, similar to Benny Golson, that the group plays together with solos of sax and piano. Por allí viene Costi is a catchy melody and easy, in a monk style, with a outstanding vibraphone solo in detail. . Hermes The Messenger, dedicated to his son, presents the peculiar sound of saxophone and vibraphone, it is a casual and elegant theme, messenger of an interiorized joy that reminds Stan Getz. Candela is back!, dedicated to his friend's daughter, has a pendular beat on which the difficult figures met in an open and animated way, as if announcing good news.
Por allí viene Costi is a recording created with love without additives, honest jazz from beginning to end. It is here to stay.
