Bovet Brothers and Friends: KWA
Album realizzato “in famiglia”, questo dei Bovet Brothers (piano, sax, batteria), cui si aggiungono due Friends per completare l’organico.

Quando nel nome della band c’è “And Friends”, possiamo immaginare che tipo di musica viene proposta. Una musica gioiosa e ben inserita nei solchi della tradizione. Non fa eccezione questo quintetto, che si diverte a giocare con echi ed ispirazioni del passato, più o meno espliciti, per confezionare un album di sincero bop. Con il metronomo che scandisce brioso, qualche accenno latino, un paio di ballads messe qua e là per dare respiro all’ascoltatore.

Musica da jazz club, da assaporare in compagnia, accompagnata da un buon boccale di birra.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
