SPAIN: Iñaki Arakistain NEW CD "SAXUAL"


Iñaki Arakistain NEW CD "SAXUAL"

IÑAKI ARAKISTAIN
SAX, FLUTE, COMPOSITION.

Versatile instrumentalist, quoted session musician and jazz musician
to the core, the saxophonist Basque IÑAKI ARAKISTAIN, in addition to
sharing recordings and scenes with many of the most important
musicians of the national jazz and commercial music, and even
international, has managed to carve out a solid reputation in the
Spanish jazz scene with their personal musical projects always
intoxicated of Grooves and Funk essence.

A path that starts in 2008 with TIMES OF SEARCH (New Mood Jazz),
devout Declaration of jazz principles that mixes without complexes
Hard Bop and Latin Jazz; continues in 2010 with PLAN B (Youkali Music)
a work of overwhelming confirmation of Funk, Grooves and flavours from
Rio de Janeiro, and ends in 2014 with SAXUAL (Youkali Music), his
third LP, recorded live, in one evening, to the old style. A new and
exciting twist to the inexhaustible rhythmic impulse of Funk, with
feet firmly in place at the original root and ear tuned to the sounds
of the future. More beyond Acid Jazz and Downtempo, in a territory in
which very few musicians of our country faced with such
self-confidence and authority.
