Kasseldown Quintet are a new project, formed in late 2013, playing all original material. The compositions and approach are inspired by the music of contemporary groups led by Ari Hoenig, Aaron Parks, Gilad Hekselman, Julian Lage, Brad Mehldau, Jonathan Kreisberg, Adam Rodgers and Aaron Goldberg, as well as the great quintets of the 50s/60s led by Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis and Brown/Roach. Whilst jazz/improvised music is the common springboard, the material also often takes cues from classical, rock and folk traditions.
