Pour leur deuxième album «Vol 13 Mysterious Realm of the Sonnestube», Space Age Sunset a revisité sa galaxie d’inspirations et d’improvisations. Construisant ses morceaux comme de petites pièces, nourries de jazz exotica et de rythmes répétitifs, c’est en quintet que le groupe s’est embarqué sur les traces des compositeurs Américains, Italiens et Mexicains. Laissant planer des soli rappelant parfois le Harvest time de Pharoah Sanders,
évoquant les mondes engloutis d’Yma Sumac, Juan Esquivel et Arthur Lyman où parcourant les grands espaces de Bill Frisell.

La musique de Space Age Sunset est avant tout une proposition moderne ou les compositions originales du groupe font écho avec clairvoyance à l’extraordinaire aventure musicale qui fit naître la stéréo, l’audiophilie et la spatialisation du son.

De nombreuses percussions, claviers, guitares et basses, rencontrent voix et saxophone.
Un melting pot mondial, puissant et savoureux.

Ensemble depuis le début, les membres de Space Age Sunset ont écouté John Zorn à la récréation, avalé Alice Coltrane au gouter, mais ont surtout découvert les espaces miraculeusement sauvegardés du jazz Exotica ! Passionnés par ces saveurs désuètes et délicates, John, Nelson et Robin ont monté ensemble ce trio sans angle-mort, puis sont rejoints par Réka & Saïdou. Leurs maîtres à penser : Arthur Lymam, Juan Esquivel, Martin Denny.


For their second record “Vol 13 Mysterious Realm of the Sonnestube”, Space Age Sunset renewed their cosmic place by adding to their magical trinity some strange harmonics and percussion from deep down and aerial voices from afar.
Réka Csiszér, a jazz siren from the deep woods of transylvania and Baba Saidu Konaté, a master of percussion from the village of ouahgouya in Burkina Fasso were invited to join them on their musical journey.

In the heat of three summer nights the five musicians composed and improvised their brought along musical souvenirs in a very spontaneous and free approach. Those old fashioned one take sessions were captured on tape by Simone Bernardoni and Marco Guglielmetti in a magical place called the Sonnenstube, which many know as Ticino (Switzerland).

The result is a timeless record, which is a testimony of their love and celebration of exotica jazz. Often considered as an “under style”, this album is a hommage and their own modern take on this classic genre.
Many percussions, keys, guitars and bass, meet vocals and saxophone. A worldwide meltingpot, recorded live and tasty.
