The Eric Hofbauer Quintet is kicking off summer with the digital release of the critically acclaimed sister recordings, Prehistoric Jazz Volume 1 – The Rite of Spring and Prehistoric Jazz Volume 2 – Quatour pour la fin du temps. Both recordings are now available through most digital retailers, including i-tunes and youtube.
In addition, Warren Amerman from Rotary Records, who recorded both Prehistoric Jazz releases, recently shot and edited a music video of ‘The Augurs of Spring’ from Prehistoric Jazz Volume 1! It is rare to see a serious production-value music video of jazz, or most other instrumental music for that matter, especially one able to capture the spirit of improvisation and group interaction through the camera angles and film editing. Very cool!
