SAINT JAZZ TEN NOODE FESTIVAL
29th Edition sep. 2014
Sal La Rocca Band (BE / NL) featuring Mete ERKER
Live @ Jazz Station (BE)
Band : Sal La Rocca (d.b) – Mete Erker (t.s. & a.s.) – Lorenzo Di Miao (gt.) – Pascal Mohy (p) – Hans van Oosterhout (drs).
The Bassist Sal La Rocca takes us into a personal world of modern jazz. He collaborates with a guitarist with an approach to the instrument that combines energy, rock sounds and jazz improvisations. The top-flight musicians in this group take us on a journey of harmony and rhythm in perfect balance. Their music is light and blends the past and the present. There’s swing, groove, strength and tenderness.
(…) I like Sal’s composing; it give the other musicians some great moments to work on and show what they can do without being over stated. On the IGLOO Label this is well deserved 5 star album.” – Brian Soundy (UK Jazz Radio & the Jazz Critic)
