El objetivo de este proyecto es el desarrollo de la improvisación, ya sea en función de una composición o sin ésta, en donde estos cuatro músicos van creando diversos espacios, formas, movimientos, instancias, paisajes sonoros, proyectando así el libre juego sonoro entre ellos; combinando su tradición jazzistica y de la improvisación europea, junto a propuestas más contemporáneas y algunas influencias del rock de los 60 y 70’s.

pan y rosas release la continuidad by the ada rave quartet!

hey everyone. we are beyond excited to tell you that the new awesomeness comes from a quartet of improvisers and jazzniks out of argentina. the group consists of ada rave on saxophones, wenchi lazo on guitar and electronics, martín de lassaletta on bass, and martín lópez grande on drums.

the quartet combines the languages of jazz, free improvisation and out rock of the 60′s and 70′s, as a way of reaching their objective – improvisation! improv as a means of composition and improv as the composition itself. in their music they create diverse spaces, sensory forms, movements, instances and related sounds all the while projecting their own voice and collective identity.

their first album, la continuidad is a fury of sound. intensely focused free improvisations give rise to pre-conceived compositions that allow the quartet to stretch out. they pay tribute to their inspirations – monk, braxton, ornette and dolphy – but, from that starting point, they set off in their own direction. lots of space, lots of listening to each other. quiet studies in the limits of their instruments. swing pulse rhythms on post modern be-bop. a genuine sound of joy.

you truly owe it to yourself to check this one out. do it here!
