  More info

Sam Keevers brought together this stellar line-up to record an album over two nights at Bennetts Lane. With two hours of their greatest moments down, the sessions became two albums, No Conditions and No Exceptions. Keever's compositions consistently explore elements of Latin-jazz and this is apparent in the title track on No Conditions, with the solid pulse of the ‘ostinato’ which allows the (Cuban) ‘Cascara’ to build and emerge.

This dynamic energy continues throughout the album with its unique rhythm and timing. No Exceptions, maintaining that energy, opens with a Cha Cha Cha in 7/4 time. That unmistakable rhythm, relaying a certain flamboyance and freshness carries through the recording from the Latin rhythms to the more contemporary pieces.

The live atmosphere enhances their vibrant performance. Featuring: Sam Keevers- Piano, Bernie McGann- Alto Saxophone, Scott Tinkler- Trumpet, Jamie Oehlers- Tenor Saxophone, Jordan Murray- Trombone, Stephen Magnusson- Guitar, Rodrigo Aravena- Double Bass, Simon Barker- Drums, Javier Fredes and Michael Carmona- Percussion
