Last album

Circum Continuum - in which space and time weave the delicate relationship of its components to us, so so small, but so different. The unique combination of creative ideas of the musicians of the group and their performance due to their musical experiences and influences, ensures that the newest product stands out for its originality and quality. The appearance melodic hard parts, as well as the rhythmic foundation and advanced harmonics, more complex forms provide a sound and a voice as unique and modern, with a coherent ensemble. The various criticisms received by all, over the years, as evidenced now describe the group has particular potential. The warm welcome and unanimous, the praise it received from the public and professionals of international jazz has always confirmed its high capacity deployment, intelligence and magic both on stage and on record, whatever its formation.
