Basque saxophonist Gorka Benítez, focuses his skills on a completely self-penned set except for a swinging reading of the well-known standard Because of You inspired by the city where he grew up. It is, to a certain extent, a contemporary post-bop session with varied pieces, full of surprises and wit that present the many different aspects of Benitez's formidable improvising talents. Gorka is backed by a supporting band of close-friends consisting of guitarist Dani Perez, bassist Rai Ferrer, and David Xirgu on drums.

Press reviews

**** by Roger Roca

"Para el saxofonista vasco, su ciudad natal sabe a óxido y cemento, pero también esconde belleza asomando entre las ruinas. La dibuja a cuarteto con un jazz de formas angulosas, melodías claras y una sensibilidad que eriza el vello."
