SAL LA ROCCA 4tet
Bassist Sal La Rocca's new album is full of groove and freedom. His modern jazz and transe-like sounds are touched by avant-gardism. Walloon and Flemish, Belgian and Italian, his band is a model of unity through diversity. The project explores a certain duality.

Sal and Pascal are more anchored in the tradition, while remaining permeable to other sounds. This alliance offers open music, with surprising tones, groove background that recall the hard-bop of the 60s. – Igoo Records/Album
