I would like to present to you my last and most personal Project: Marco Boi Quintet.
The group members are Marco Losada (Drums), Vicente Pérez (Slide Trombone), Yeray Hernández (Electric Guitar), Leonardo Torres (Trumpet) and Marco Boi (Double bass and Composer).
The quintet represents an important stage in my career, as it was the first time I composed freely, without any concern for adapting the composition to a certain style.
The result has been a mixture of genres that I have been listening to and playing during the last few years. Typical sounds of jazz join most typical rock riffs and obstinatos with certain psychedelic colour.
Another important point was the dynamics of the band. Contrast between the different sections of compositions, cause surprise and tension in the audience.
In addition to the written parts, we’ve all had space to express ourselves as best as we know: Improvising. It is the fundamental element that we like in music we usually play, and what ensures flexibility and allows the compositions be the result of collective effort.
What do we use the money for?
We were so satisfied with the result after the recording session that we decided to transfer the music into vinyl, so we’ll use your contributions for: the design, edition and production.
The album will be the reference DR001 of Discos Redondos, a newly created label created by Tony García.
The vinyl will be an EP 12 '' 45 rpm , its cover will be a piece of art created by Moises Castelló (Catalan artist), and will contain two tracks . Two long pieces, articulated in several parts, with different sound environments and their respective digressions of improvisational nature.
Marco Boi Quintet is the result of my musical experience in the last few years, the result of my work as a sideman and leader in several bands.
