Next album Butterflies and Zebras to be mixed in early August and released on Fresh Sound New Talent!


Excited about mixing my next album in early August! I am happy to announce "Butterflies and Zebras", by Ditmas Quartet, will be released on Fresh Sound New Talent. Each recording is different, each photo of a moment is truly different and unique. The music is always new, challenging and full of different emotions each time. The learning process is endless. I feel really fortunate that I am and chose to be a musician, a pianist and a composer. And by that I get to work with amazing and dedicated musicians. It feels just right to listen back, make choices and process that great picture of a moment so it becomes alive. Peace.Estoy muy contenta de mezclar mi próximo disco a principios de agosto! Tengo el placer de anunciar que "Butterflies and Zebras", por Ditmas Quartet, será editado por el sello Fresh Sound New Talent. Cada grabación es diferente, cada foto de un momento es realmente diferente y única. La música es siempre nueva, desafiante y cargada de emociones distintas cada vez. El proceso de aprendizaje es interminable. Me siento muy afortunada de ser y de haber elegido ser músico, pianista y compositora. Y por ello tengo la oportunidad de trabajar con músicos increíbles y dedicados. Sienta realmente bien escuchar de nuevo, tomar decisiones para procesar esa gran fotografía de un momento y que ésta cobre vida. Salud.

Ditmas Quartet was formed in 2013 in Brooklyn and is a collaboration between pianist Eva Novoa, saxophonist Michaël Attias, bassist Max Johnson & drummer Jeff Davis. This quartet experiments with diverse sounds and textures. The band members play mostly their own original compositions giving lots of freedom in their playing making each performance different and unique. It is an organic ensemble where each member participates and contributes equally to the repertoire and improvisations with a colourful approach and powerful sound. Expect melodic themes and unisons, catchy rhythms and grooves, Jazz and also cooking swing at some point. You don't want to miss this very special setting! Michaël Attias - Alto Saxophone; Eva Novoa - Piano; Max Johnson - Bass; Jeff Davis - Drums.
