“It is in Music, perhaps, that the soul most nearly attains the great end for which, when inspired by the Poetic Sentiment, it struggles—the creation of supernal Beauty.”

For the first time, a jazz music project honors Edgar Allan Poe's poetry inspired by his honesty and creative freedom. In this album, entitled POE, the Spanish company Steam Rocket Productions presents the musicalization of a selection of poems by the famous romantic writer.
The compositional process was a real artistic challenge given the complexity and depth of the verses, the infinity of musical possibilities, textures and scenarios, and the difficulty in formulating an original and authentic style while honouring a key figure in contemporary literature. The result is a personal and colorful tribute to the writer's figure and work, in which the music accompanies the poetry as if it were a soundtrack.
The performance of this quintet of virtuosos in the vanguard of the Spanish Jazz Scene, accompanied in this project by the amazing French vocalist Marie Martin, is really surprising for the interpretative intensity of each one of its members!
A genuine and different artistic proposal, with powerful compositions and exquisite interpretation.
