Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Praised by press and audiences alike, this quintet led by young Belgian jazz pianist Joachim Caffonnette is a jazz group as powerful as a rock band! In 2011, the Belgian pianist formed a band with musicians he met at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels. In February 2015, the band was chosen as one of three finalists of the STORM contest (among 40 candidates). In March and April, they gave a series of concerts at several jazz clubs before entering the studio to record their first album, released on AZ Productions.
Personnel: Florent Jeunieaux (guitar); Laurent Barbier (alto saxophone); Joachim Caffonnette (piano); Daniele Cappucci (double bass); Armando Luongo (drums).
