Info for Stop for a While
Low-Fly Quintet will release their first album on the renowned Norwegian jazz label Losen Records in October 2017. Their performance on the debut album ”Stop For A While” will give you a sense of being present in a smoky, underground, jazz club in New York.
LFQ composes Vivacious, Sexy, Elegant, Raw, & Genuine original songs inspired by vocal jazz from the early 30’s. They also impart their innovative interpretation of select familiar songs from the same era. Their modern approach to the classical sound of traditional vocal jazz will surprise and move you. Low-Fly Quintet transports you back in time to the music that incited emotionalism. The theme of this debut album is both raw everyday realism, and colourful daydream-like life. Some songs feature tender, embracing love that relieves tension, while other songs are about more complex and sometimes even dark aspects of life that leave the listener in a state of reflection. LFQ’s artistry will take you on a journey where you’ll experience a musical interlude that will be charming, fun, sensual, energetic and unique.
