I mention it both because I’m friends with most of the band and also because I’m intrigued that the home recording revolution has spread into the jazz world. There may be countless other CDs of this type, but I don’t know because I run in different circles. This effort shows how great a recording one can make with good musicians & songs, some relatively cheap equipment and a passion for the music.This is a post to recommend “Moon And Sand” album by the Remember April Quintet: A mixture of latin jazz standards (“One Note Samba”, “How Insensitive” & more) and one or two original pieces. The band perform & sing simply & beautifully together and the recording is a pleasure to listen to: calming, laid back, but deeply soulful in places.
