Mede de kwaliteiten van elke muzikant die aan dit avontuur deelneemt, toont Sal La Rocca ons zijn eigen wereld, sterk en modern : hedendaagse jazz in de vorm van een reis, bij elke fase is er een lied dat men kan neuriën. Mooie en levendige composities in perfecte balans !
Beyond the individual qualities of all the musicians involved in this project, Sal La Rocca reveals his own musical world, coherent and modern : contemporary jazz, a journey with a song to hum at each stop. Perfectly well balanced compositions !


About Sal La Rocca
Sal La Rocca – Initially briefly interested in guitar rock,  he discovered the jazz genre in the early 1980s. Sal traded the guitar for the bass and taught himself the jazz idiom, inspired by the model of Paul Chambers. La Rocca tirelessly built on his abilities as a musician, and it did not take long before he was noticed playing alongside Toots THIELEMANS, Philip CATHERINE, Steve GROSSMAN, Lee KONITZ, Dani KLEIN featuring Vaya Con Dios…
Sal (Salvatore) La Rocca has released three albums under his own name, such as LATINEA (Jan 2003).  IT COULD BE THE END (Feb 2012), with : Lorenzo DI MAIO (guitar), Pascal MOHY (piano & Fender Rh.) and Hans van OOSTERHOUT (drums) featuring : Jacques SCHWARZ-BART (t. sax) on the IGLOO RECORDS  label.
SHIFTED (Nov 2018), with : Jeroen van Herzeele (t. & s. sax), Pascal Mohy (piano & Wurlitzer) & Lieven Venken (drums) on IGLOO RECORDS & EL NEGOCITO RECORDS labels.  Igloo Records & el Negocito Records
The project explores a certain duality. First, by the presence of Flemish and Walloon musicians; then, by the apparent opposition between avant-gardism and tradition. Jeroen and Lieven open doors to unexpected sounds and colors. Sal and Pascal are more anchored in the tradition, while remaining permeable to other sounds. Theresome, this alliance offers open music, with surprising tones, groove background that recall the hard-bop of the 60s.  Igoo Records/Album
