Three men & one woman unite their airstreams and become one instrument, a saxophone turbine. Together they make a quartet with a propelling power, with a groove. A quartet with the energy of young lions combined with the insight and ripeness of experienced jazzmusicians.
Their repertoire is a balanced mixture of jazz and bebop combined with fresh ideas. Jazz standards as a point of departure, but also orginal compositions composed by the players themselves or by other composers, like for instance Phil Woods.
Prize of the jury during the Tremplin Jazz of Avignon 2006 (France).
