Charles McPherson Quartet - Loved Walked In (2015)


Charles Mcpherson vuelve a la primera línea de la escena del jazz con “Love Walked In” , un disco donde la sabiduría de este saxofonista veterano y esencial, se hace evidente. Acompañado por un grupo de músicos de lujo que incluye a Bruce Barth al piano, Jeremy Brown al bajo y Stephen Keogh a la batería, Mcpherson propone un repertorio mayoritariamente compuesto por grandes clásicos del jazz. Lo hace desde su propia visión , con todo el peso que puede aportar a la música alguien que forma parte de la gran historia del jazz y que ha sido protagonista de alguna de sus páginas más notables.

Tete Montoliu - Piano for Nuria (2016)


Este disco de Tete se grabó con la sección ritmica al completo (Tete al piano, Peter Trunk al bajo y Al Heath a la bateria) que grabó el famoso disco a duo entre los tenores Ben Webster y Don Byas en la selva negra, en los estudios privados del productor de MPS y gran aficionado al jazz "Hanks Georg Brunner Schwer". Gustó tanto el acompañamiento hecho a Ben y Byas, que sin deshacer las maletas se quedaron a grabar este disco que Tete cariñosamente dedicó a su hija Nuria. La edicion es la original española de 1968. Un hermoso álbum.

Tete Montoliu y el magnífico trompetista nacido en la antigua Yugoslavia, Dusko Goykovich, grabaron este álbum fruto de un encuentro amistoso entre ambos.

Grabado en Barcelona, en noviembre de 1971, en plena efervescencia de la fusión Goykovich y el trío de Montoliu (con Joey Nay a la batería y Robert Langereis al bajo), dan una lección de jazz con un sencillo repertorio.

Vitor Pereira Quintet - New World (2016)


This exciting and energetic band is on the road to present their most recent album “New World”.

Its strong and unique sound has captivated the interest of the Jazz community who described them as “intriguing” or “innovative” and drew comparison to artists like “Led Bib” or “Trio VD”. From catchy rock-like riffs to more quiet and mesmerising atmospheres they cover a full spectrum of textures unveiling a vast background of musical influences and leading the listener through a very diverse and “bumpy” journey. They jumped into international recognition in 2012 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘Doors’. Vitor Pereira was born in Porto/Portugal where he studied mainly classical music and classical guitar. His interest in Jazz took him to participate in seminars and private lessons with the likes of Pat Metheny, Jonathan Kreisberg, Gilad Hekselman or Aaron Goldberg to name a few and ultimately led him to London in 2004 in study at the “Middlesex University”. Living in London since then he is an active name in the UK and Europe playing with names like: James Allsopp, Asaf Sirkis, Josh Arcoleo, Marc Demuth, etc…

“Pereira’s music is a heady mix of immediately accessible jazz, hard-hitting rock and hints of ‘world’ music”

Chris Williams, alto sax
Alam Nathoo, tenor sax
Andrea Di Biase, bass
Adam Teixeira, drums



Based in London, this acclaimed quintet has been packing up venues all over Europe and the UK.

The history of this band goes back to 2009. Initially as a quartet they have been focusing mainly on original music, experimenting through a broad range of aesthetics as well as band members and culminating in the full grown and conceptually strong band it is today.

Despite its obvious Jazz roots, this music unveils a vast background of musical influences where energetic and catchy riffs together with hints of classical and world music create here an extremely unique and dynamic sound capable of captivating even the most reluctant listener.

They jumped into international recognition in 2012 with the release of its debut album ‘Doors’ on ‘F-IRE Presents’, which has drawn great reviews.

The Quintet’s second album “New World” is due to be released in March 2016 also on “F-IRE Presents”.

With a successful performance history and the talent of some of the most prominent and award winning musicians in the UK, this quintet is soon becoming one of the most promising contemporary jazz bands of the moment.
