freejazzy They've got style. The bandleader leaves space for all the magicians to fill in. Actually díscovered Aaron Parks here - ain't this cool? Adorable music. I'm somehow especially fond of the classic tune. Favorite track: I've Grown Accustomed To Her Face (feat. Aaron Parks).

Florian Arbenz Wow! This recording is a real killer, check it out! Contemporary Jazz at it's best. Great line up and very inspiring playing. I was introduced to Hermon through Jorge Vistel who plays trumpet in my Convergence project. Hermon was supposed to play as sub one of the Convergence-gigs, unfortunately cancelled due to Corona.... I really hope to share the stage with him soon! Favorite track: Tatra.
