Reptet achieves "a bittersweet and elegiac mood of orchestral grandeur."
"A juggernaut jazz band, arresting, compelling, and just plain cranked-up."
Monktail Records recording artists REPTET will be touring the east coast this fall to promote their critically acclaimed and historically galvanized new CD, Do This!
The bands tour of the east coast begins in Grand Rapids, Michigan and takes them through six states - including multiple performances in Chicago and New York as well as shows in Philadelphia and Washington, DC.
Reptet is a sextet consisting of six multi-instrumentalists (two women and four men) all of whom are members of the internationally acclaimed Monktail Creative Music Concern based out of Seattle, WA. They have established themselves as a group of considerable excitement, flair and vision while simultaneously debunking preconceived notions of what a jazz group ought to be. Their music has been aired on radio stations across the United States and Europe,
Reptet’s new CD, entitled Do This! features the first jazz album cover by the legendary illustrator Jim Flora in over 45 years. Crafted on old style letterpress, the total package is a stunning amalgam of traditional and progressive jazz both sight and sound.
