The fourth album by Web Web "WEB MAX" is a great spiritual jazz work - sometimes floating, sometimes soulful, always intense and a wonderful homage to early seventies Jazz. Web Web mastermind Roberto Di Gioia is accompanied for the first time by Max Herre as a composer, musician and producer. Both came together with guest musicians such as Mulatu Astatke, Brandee Younger, Charles Tolliver (Strata East) and others to deliver a virtuoso masterpiece.
WEB MAX is the fourth album in four years by the internationally highly acclaimed Web Web quartet, consisting of keyboarder, pianist Roberto Di Gioia, saxophonist Tony Lakatos, bassist Christian von Kaphengst and drummer Peter Gall, all of them long time performers of highest virtuosity, signed to Michael Reinboth's Compost Records. To give consideration to the foregoing, the jazz sessions that has been set up by Herre and Di Gioia lead to the Web Web project, so you can call WEB MAX as "The Prequel".
Press Qutes for the Web Web previous albums:
"...the album is engaging and fascinating in equal measures. … Sonically, the album embraces the various late 1960s and '70s jazz aesthetics of modal, fusion and spiritual jazz soundscapes, but 'Oracle' isn't a Strata East or Black Jazz tribute record. This is very much a contemporary affair with its richness emanating from the group's varied musical tastes and sensibilities and it favours an entire listening experience." -- ukvibe.org
"Raise a glass and toast this supremely enjoyable recording." -- birdistheworm.com
