There is a quintet version of a brand new line-up with Maayan Smith on tenor sax and Noam Israeli (Now permanently replaced by Umberto Odone) on drums. On the piano, it is the incomparable Igor Gehenot whose percussive sound tinged with Caribbean tones gives a warm and welcoming music. Phil Abraham, who collaborated on Sal’s latest album, enters the band with beautiful textures highlighting the compositions of Sal La Rocca. These sound groovy, resolutely optimistic. They make you think of the sea, the beach, make you want to dance, hug, laugh … It feels great at the time when these few words are written …
