A’Brass are not where you expect them to be.
Mind you, jazz three tubas,a tuben, a saxophone and a drum kit! that's something quite unexpected! Still a unique sincere connection unites these musicians ; obviously. Beyond the changes of intensity and nuances, a great expressive and formal homogeneity always wins.
Stunning with the splendour of its sounds and the cleverness and refining of its conception mixed with the power of an invincible strength, their live performances are simply amazing. They also give a measure of the eclecticism of their repertoire, essentially built on their own compositions, combining relentless thoroughness and infinite freedom. These transitions then then become as strategically important as the main conflictual phases.
A’Brass deserve a place of their own and it is no wonder then that they got awarded at Festival « Jazz à Vienne » in 2005.
