sample the album:
A duo work of two improvisers. Eguiluz (voice) comes from originally from Mexico. Diamantakiou, playing upright bass, is originates from Marseille (France). They started their collaboration in 2012 in Montreal, where both have their base. Diamantakiou is also member of te ensemble Rubedo'ro , led by Eguiluz. As a duo they take themes from jazz standards as a starting point for their free improvised excursions. For their first release 'Paso Doble' they made recordings in February-March 2014 in the studio, using themes from Mingus, Ellington and Bach. Their improvisations breathe a delicate and fragile atmosphere. They are full of subtle movements and gestures. Beautifully sung by Eguiluz who has a characteristic and recognizable voice. Also the playing by Diamantakiou is fine. A rich and solid work."-Trou De Bras
