SWQ (Sandra Weiss Quintet)

Best concert of the year 2016 by Cisco Bradley for Jazz Right Now (NYC)!

SWQ is a journey into the vast universe of sound, where one rambles, resolving into a billow of sound that evolves into different shapes and densities.

The instruments are the source of a variety of sounds and noises, which are not necessarily recognizable as a saxophone, trumpet, bass or drum.

The Cd, SWQ „Ramble“, was released on the English label Leo Records in August 2015

Sandra Weiss - alto saxophone / bassoon

Jonathan Moritz - soprano and tenor saxophones

Kenny Warren - trumpet

Sean Ali - double bass

Carlo Costa – drums

SWQ came together as a result of a number of sessions organized by Sandra Weiss, on her visits to NYC. "It was an amazing musical trip each time we played together and it needed to be recorded eventually."
