These 4 experienced musicians have been playing together for 20 years and offer you their own compositions and arrangements of jazz standards. The atmosphere of the "Hard-Bop" era of the '50s and '60s is not far away, without falling into nostalgia... The mutual listening and musical happen very naturally and are a pleasure to watch and listen to.
