About SLR 5

A sneak peek at bassist Sal La Rocca’s new band, SLR 5, and their upcoming release Joker with Maayan Smith (tenor sax), Phil Abraham (trombone), Igor Gehenot (piano) and Noam Israeli (drums). Sal La Rocca, one Belgium‘s 🇧🇪 finest bass players with an illustrious career behind (and ahead) of him, is surrounding himself with young talent for this new exciting quintet. All new material and adventurous group interplay is on the menu !



Jazz Station/ Review
soundsSal La Rocca never ceases to surprise us. After the hit album “Shifted”, the Sicilian-born double bass player returns with a new and profoundly different project. There is a quintet version of a brand new line-up with Maayan Smith on tenor sax and Noam Israeli on drums. Two Israeli musicians newly arrived in Brussels, whom Sal met during a jam, and whose ardor and energy quickly seduced. 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 …
