Guitarist and composer Dave Allen celebrates the release of his first recording since his critically acclaimed, Real and Imagined. He has been praised by critics as " An exciting and unique player in the mold of Pat Metheny, Ben Monder and Adam Rogers” (Lyle Robinson). Allen’s exploration of challenging, labyrinthine compositions will be realized by his new quintet featuring saxophonist Jon Irabagon, pianist pianist Gary Versace, and Allen’s long-time rhythm section of bassist Drew Gress and drummer Mark Ferber

"Allen has found a true voice, his effortless technique downplays the apparent complexity, paradoxically creating a cool surface sheen that has a white heat glowing beneath it. Each piece is like an aural painting or film in the way it slides across the psyche." -- All About Jazz

Alex LoRre, alto sax;  Jerome Sabagh, tenor sax;  Marta Sanchez, piano;  Simon Wilson, bass;  Daniel Dor, drums

Combining elements of rock, pop, jazz, classical and experimental music, Marta's tunes are rhythmically complex but strongly melodic. Music that tell stories by integrating folk elements with the harmonic sophistication and spontaneity of jazz.

The Quintet is presenting their last work, “Danza Imposible”, released by Fresh Sound Records in October of 2017. In an early review, The New York Times said about it “It features eight tunes she wrote explicitly for her two-saxophone quintet that dance with an unruly grace. It’s glimmering, propulsive music, with hints of elegiac Spanish folk song, cool jazz from the 1950s and the Romantic modern jazz of the 1990s”
