It is in spring 2018 that the Musina Ebobissé Quintet comes through after a series of concerts and the recording of a first album titled “Timeprints”.
Inspired by the energy and incandescence of 60s jazz and the impressionist sounds of early twentieth century classical music, Musina composes a contemporary multi-faceted jazz that navigates between different atmospheres and various colors. His search for authenticity lies in the effects of contrasts and continuities suggested by the compositions and the interplay of the band.
Sometimes modal, sometimes atonal, angular or circular, the melodic lines of the saxophones cross, answer and blend. They weave the outline of a canvas, completed by the piano harmonies and the rhythmic structures of the bass and drums. Together, they explore different musical forms with a sense of collective play that aims a haunting narration. The music of Musina Ebobissé Quintet wants to be a sonic tale, taking the listener on an expressive musical journey.
Their debut album “TIMEPRINTS” was released in august 2019 on Double Moon Records, as part of the Jazzthing Next Generation Vol 79.
