The musicians of the Five in Orbit have drunk in the sources of the jazz. They are touched by their vitality and energy. They all have made their own way, have gathered musical and human experiences.

”A quintet effervescent and expressionist, but under no circumstances anchored in the past. It is about an invitation to put you into a trance “. Alex Dutilh, Jazzman (France)

Karles Torra, La Vanguardia
