Malay Tone Poem

“An important and enjoyable contribution to the new, emergent European jazz - full of confidence and creativity.”  The  Observer 

We get to hear a lot of albums at The Spin and this is one of the finest bands that we have heard in the last few years. Jazz Extempore comes to the UK for a tour and we recommend early booking for this show. Their music is a thrilling blend of jazz, East European grooves, latin and funk, with a Metheny-esque inflection. 
The  group features Andrea Vicari on piano from the UK, Elvis Stanic on guitar and accordion from Croatia, Rico de Jeer  on bass from Holland/Indonesia and Hristo Yotsov on drums from Bulgaria. 
The group was initially formed as a cultural exchange between Croatia and other European countries with gigs in Croatia (Zagreb jazz club,  Liburnia jazz festival), Bulgaria (Live Club Sofia, Plovdiv jazz festival) as well as Holland and England (Scarborough jazz festival 2010) and more recently the group toured Eastern Europe including Bosnia, Herzegovina, Croatia and Italy.
