Fraccalvieri / long quintet
Thu 14th Sep 17 edit
Drawing heavily on the cool West Coast sound of the 50's and 60's, this new co-led quintet, featuring a front line of Alto Saxophone and the rarely heard Vibraphone, takes it inspiration from the great figures of that era to bring you a clean, straight ahead mainstream sound. From tender ballads to blistering bop, the group covers a wide range of repertoire ranging from the 20's right up to the present day taking in a variety of styles and moods along the way. The quintet is made up of some of South Wales most in demand players who between them, have performed and recording with many of the leading figures in British Jazz.
