CR12: QUINTETO COVA VILLEGAS – Free Space (2013)

Cova Villegas’s voice carries the music on this album: a shameless approach to the art of cover versions, pulling off impossible renditions created at will by the band, in their own terms. This isn’t a typical jazz record, it’s not even a free jazz album; though created on such foundations, this creature goes beyond all this. It is a true avant-garde gem with all instruments in the right place, where all improvisations settle in, in perfect harmony.

Cova Villegas: voice
Cy Williams: guitar, kalimba
Diego Gutiérrez: drums
Jorge Frías: double bass
Ildefonso Rodríguez: tenor sax, bass clarinet, hulusi

Free Space is their third album, the first for Clamshell Records.
