Eclectic mix of jazz, latin, fusion and other elements with Gerry Rempel’s 7 piece group

From Eugene Weekly review of Album “Sketches From the Underground”

Rempel, along with his group Gerry Rempel Jazz Syndicate, is celebrating his third release: Sketches from the Underground, a collection of all-original jazz compositions.  Rempel tells EW the album, recorded in Eugene at Pro-Arts Studio, explores fusions between jazz, world music and even rock. “Drawing from the huge array of global music at our disposal,” Rempel explains, “Latin, Middle Eastern, Indian.”

“Overall, Sketches draws inspiration from classic jazz and Herbie Hancock-style innovators, but also from the prog rock era, when bands like Yes and King Crimson brought jazz elements into rock’s rule book. But jazz’s spirit of improvisation is what Rempel loves most. “What I love about jazz is the freedom. It’s never the same,” he explains. “To me that’s everything. It has its melody and harmonic structures, then usually in all the tunes there’s going to be room for improvisation. There’s that melodic freedom.”
