Rebirth::Collective – Witchcraft (SFR-CD009)
Catalogue Nr SFR-CD009
Release date 28 September 2017
Album n°3 of Rebirth::Collective. After their well-received self-titled debut album and ‘Raincheck’, their tribute to the repertoire of Billy Strayhorn featuring soloist Jesse Van Ruller, the band returns to their initial octet line-up, with mainly own compositions and arrangements of leader and trombonist Dree Peremans. The basic idea remains the same : a fresh and contemporary, but still fully acoustic personal take on hard bop, with well-arranged swinging versions of standards and originals, and a lot of space for solo work from all seats in the band.
