A friend of mine, cellist Anna Rehker, asked me if I would be up to filming a gig she was doing with a band she is a part of called “ChopEspresso”. This is the result.
In their own words: ChopEspresso is a CrossOver ensemble moving between latin, jazz, soul, chamber music and pop. The quintet have created a characteristically unique sound as a result of sophisticated arrangements, where the lower string voices are blended with the saxophone.
The band consists of: Paulo Alves // voc, guitar Tom Reinbrecht // soprano & alto sax, arrangements Alexa Kathleen Beattie // viola Anna Rehker // cello Thomas Simmerl // percussion
