Over a decade together, the Devil Quartet is synonymous of a musical Journey, that come to life with the CD “Desertico“, between Africa and the western world through jazz, rock and the mestizo.
Despite the poetics of the sardinian trumpeter is always in evidence, the rhythmic energy and cohesion among the group components is the fundamental character of this now historic italian quartet. Even in “Desertico“, as in the previous “Stanley Music”, the songs were mostly written by the group members, but always shines the love for the singing of ballads and the tribute to the Rolling Stones rock.
The tirelss members of the band together create albums designed to last. Works full of emotions, sweat and blood.
