Existem momentos em que a emoção supera os percalços do caminho, falo de manter um blog, no meu caso são alguns blogs, na tentativa unica e exclusiva de levar o pouco que sei sobre música a todos que busquem por novidades sejam elas novas ou não. Esta semana tive o enorme prazer de receber um email do grupo Francês Urban Sax, elogiando o trabalho do blog e sugerindo uma postagem sobre a banda, na verdade esta postagem já havia sido feita (confira aqui). Mas o grupo esta lançando um disco novo em selo próprio e vale a pena dar uma olhadinha no site, onde as músicas podem ser ouvidas.
A idéia por trás do selo era ser capaz de dar aos artistas exatamente o que querem, todo o caminho até a embalagem. O selo também nos permite promover a música que achamos que deve ser ouvida, e que os selos comuns pode não escolher para representar.

URBAN SAX is the fruit of a long acoustic and architectural research that began in 1973 when Gilbert Artman, the band’s Creator, Composer and Choreographer made the town of Menton, in the south of France, reverberate with strategically-placed 16 saxophonists. Over the years, from projects to projects, the band increased to its present form : 30 saxophonists, 10 chorus singers, 3 percussionists, 1 bass player and 2 dancers.
URBAN SAX can be augmented by local participants from Dance and Music Schools. This has no limit ; the band has sometimes numbered 200 !
Whenever it’s possible, Gilbert Artman likes the band to be joined by some musicians issued from different musical horizons. To give you a few examples, the band was joined in Jakarta by Balinese dancers and Gamelan musicians, in Vancouver by some Native American drummers and Scottish pipers, in Turkey by some sufis, in Tokyo by some traditional Japanese drummers…
URBAN SAX has been invited all over the world to perform in great events such as the inauguration of plazas, theatres, monuments…, opened and closed countless festivals, played in prestigious places (castles, caves, churches…), “redefined” truly urban environments like subways, factories, electric power stations…, and has been asked to participate in numerous Conventions.
URBAN SAX is known for its performances and concerts concepts albums …
On 15 January 2014, the group unveils its sixth album, “INSIDE”.
