Fiona's Comments

Fantastic tune. This was my intro to this ensemble. Definitely jazz, and with the emotional outbursts to appeal to avant-guard fans and wild strings to appeal to the chamber jazz crowd. Plus, I've always been a sucker for good vibe work. This song soars all over the place.

About the Album

AsGuests was formed in 1997 at the Slovakian music conservatory as a collaboration between vibraphonist Miro Herak and pianist Michal Vanoucek. Here, they add strings to their usual quartet, combining for a sweeping collection of original compositions.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
