"Round About Five"

PETE ROBBINS TRANSATLANTIC QUARTET

Pete Robbins (NYC) - alto saxophone, compositions Mikkel Ploug (DK) - guitar Simon Jermyn (IRL/NYC) - electric bass Sean Carpio (IRL) - drums Entrance fee: 15€ The guys from New York are back! A month after Jermyn/Ploug NYC Quartet played, these fellas are back in another combo around PETE ROBBINS. This quartet tours Europe extensively, playing a mix of my older and newer pieces. Musically, the focus is less on exploring the details of the harmonic and rhythmic elements of Robbins compositions in a clear and convincing manner. Their first album, "Live in Basel", will be released on Hate Laugh Music on February 14, 2012. BEST OF 2010: "siLENT Z - live" (Big City) BEST OF 2008: "Do The Hate Laugh Shimmy" (Blogcritics.org, Capitol Times, Hot House Magazine) BEST OF 2006: "Waits and Measures" (Furious.com, Jazzhouse.ch) "[Pete Robbins] leads...an ambitious ensemble that combines...the melodic punch of rock...[with] a cool tone and a thoughtfully off kilter sensibility. ...Mr. Robbins plays with coolness as well as confidence." (Nate Chinen, New York Times) "This guy rules. ... He s already amassed a ballpark-sized fan base. ... There s no telling where he ll go. ... Pete s officially moved in, and the downtown scene couldn t be more pumped. ... This alto saxophonist kicks ass atmospherically." (Dan King, The Village Voice) "definitely one to watch" (Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise Magazine, UK) Facebook event page Lees meer
