Andres Jimenez Quintet "LIVE" new CD out May 2018
See the trailer from the New Quintet's CD « LIVE », recorded live in may 2017. With Antoine Brouze on drums, Ninn Langel & Jean-Pierre Comparoto on doublebass, Jeff Baud on trumpet & flugelhorn and Manu Gesseney on alto sax.
Live records of Jazz are seldom those days. Most of the bands don't make long tours anymore, or don't last long enough, or when they do, there is no opportunity to properly capture the performance.
We have been very fortunate, and during the 2017 tour, after releasing our first studio album, we played in two places where Swiss Radio was recording. One of the concerts was in Studio 15 of RTS in Lausanne, and the other one during the Schaffauser Jazz Festival.
I believe that the material presented here, faithfully captures the spirit of Jazz and Hard Bop, and renders with brillance the energy of the quintet.
