- le rex: escape of the fire ants
(2019, cd, usa, cuneiform rune 464)
Le Rex is a brass quintet and consists of Benedikt Reisinger on alto sax, Marc Stucki on tenor sax, Andreas Tschopp on trombone, Marc Unternäher on tuba, plus Rico Baumann on drums.
The ensemble combines a groovy, funky sound with original melodies and quirky rhythms into beautiful instrumental modern jazz.
Original, eclectic compositions (it's no coincidence that the group named themselves after an abandoned cinema complex on the island of Corsica) with a recognizable sound. My cup of tea.
Out on Cuneiform.
CD available from Mandai.
