The Quartet was in the DLF studio to record Florian Ross’ latest large ensemble project ‘ARCHITEXTURE’ (released on the NAXOS label, Sept. 2020) involving 7 Woodwinds (classical) and Jazz Quartet when it turned out that the last day of the production wasn’t needed. After a week of hard work of bringing very structured and detailed music to life (REASON), the quartet spontaneously decided that they wanted to use the extra time in the studio to ‘just play’ in quartet (TEMPTATION). Ross scraped together some of his favorite unreleased pieces as well as an old Ralph Towner favorite and the band went for it.
