Simon Spang-Hanssen Quartet  feat. Mario Canonge

Mario Canonge,  piano
Michel Zenino,  bass
Tony Rabeson,   drums
Simon Spang-Hanssen saxophones, flute, compositions

special guest: Irving Acao, tenor-saxophone

“Whatever the constellation that surrounds his saxophones, Simon Spang-Hanssen surprises by his freshness and ability to renovate. Based in Paris for a long time, this discreet Dane has collaborated with some og the most brilliant names on the french and international scene, a couple of examples: Billy Hart, the Moutin Brothers, Denis Badault, Linley Marthe, Franck Tortiller etc. Having  a longstanding affinity
 with Antillian pianist Mario Canonge he proposes a series of compositions in the company of one of the
most refined and experienced drummers on the scene, Tony Rabeson , and the excellent Michel Zenino on bass.”
