JAZZ QUARTET

Vibrant, powerful, passionate. At the RASP Spanish temper, urban extravagance and Austrian vivacity melt into a sound spectrum which inspires and electrifies. The quartet Stefan Wegenkittl, Antonio Brazález, Peter Fuerhapter and Robert Schoosleitner plays its own jazz with a distinctive sound, charm and joy.

The debut album "U24" contains 8 self-compositions or 54 minutes of widely travelled melodies, fine ballads and amusing musical statements on nutmeg, highways and breakfast pastries. It was recorded by Roland Baumann, well known for his work with Wolfgang Muthspiel. Mix and mastering took place at 2-time Grammy winner David Darlington in New York. The album will be released 17.02.17 on the in-house label of the Salzburg club JazzIt, which has made a name for itself in recent years as Top100 DownBeat Venue.
