AKKU Quintet

Akku Quintet are a Swiss band based in Berne, from where they dispense a minimalistic jazz groove to great effect. Drummer Manuel Pasquinelli founded the band in 2010.

Their first CD “Stages of Sleep” was released in May 2013 (Morpheus Records). The quintet then set the different phases of sleep to music. Their second Album “Molecules” was released in January 2015 (Morpheus Records) on CD and Vinyl. The piece “Deep Sleep 2” is featured on the compilation CD “Jazz made in Switzerland 2014/15” by SUISA and ProHelvetia. “Aeon“ is the third album, released in march 2017.

Akku Quintet is touring regularly in Switzerland and abroad.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
