About this image

Filtron M, led by NY-based pianist, keyboardist, and composer Manu Koch, will release their latest album entitled Astoria Roots Live on True Groove Records, on April 28, 2017. The recording is the first full-length album released from the group, and was recorded live at the Iridium in New York, NY and at Moods in Zürich, Switzerland in 2014. Astoria Roots Live showcases Filtron M’s effective use of layered rhythms, driving grooves and probing bass lines, largely drawing from Koch’s eclectic compositions. The recording features the original core band of the Astoria Roots unit, consisting of keyboardist/composers Manu Koch (Switzerland), bassist Panagiotis Andreou (Greece), drummer Mauricio Zottarelli (Brazil) and on congas both Samuel Torres (Colombia/Iridium) and Sebastian Nickoll (Germany/Moods). Named after the Queens Neighborhood where they all lived and met, Astoria Roots signifies/symbolizes the early beginnings of the collective that is now known as Filtron M. Contributions from multiple guest performers add marked color and further expand the recording’s stylistic breadth. They include vocalist and flutist Yaite Ramos (Cuba/Moods), and Camila Meza (Chile) on voice and guitar, Tamer Pinarbasi (Turkey) on kanun and David Barnes (USA) on harmonica (Iridium).

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
