An excellent example of collective free improv from a quintet led by NY tenor saxophonist Yoni Kretzmer with collaborators Steve Swell (trombone), Thomas Heberer (cornet), Max Johnson (double bass) and Chad Taylor (drums), capturing the horn sound of the late 60's Blue Note era.

Kretzmer, Yoni (Steve Swell / Thomas Heberer / Max Johnson / Chad Taylor): FIVE (OutNow Recordings)

Label: OutNow Recordings    
Released in: USA    


"In Five, Kretzmer aimed to capture a horn sound reminiscent of the late 60's Blue Note Records era and give it a current day and personal interpretation. The band is horn heavy and exploits the fullness of each instrument. Joining Kretzmer are some of New York's most intriguing musicians who are no strangers to this aesthetic. The result is a band with an old-new robust sound!"-OutNow
