„Le Rex has energy and verve in abundance…robust and adventurous, this is an ensemble not to be missed.“ – Columbia, SC Free Times // „…this Swiss combo mixes it up with the best of them…finds the unexpected and makes it feel like we’ve heard it forever.“ – New York City Jazz Record
Le Rex are a quintet from Switzerland consisting of two saxophonists, trombone, tuba and drums. They are a band that answers the question, „Can you still have a party when the lights go out?“, with a resounding ‚YES‘!
The idea behind Le Rex was to create a very versatile, flexible, uncomplicated (therefore no electricity, no amplifiers!) combo to highlight the musician’s common interests in music: groove, creativity, energy without lack of detail, exciting solos, openness combined with tight ensemble playing. On Wild Man, they succeed on all of these counts! The band likes to play in public places – department stores, farms, construction sites, scrap yards – as much as possible, bringing their music not only ‚to the people‘ but to the world!
„It takes you somewhere else, it’s fun, it’s enjoyable, and it’s damn well played with a lot of energy… [with] a keen sense of what makes a hard-hitting melody and a sweaty drum’n’tuba riff. Bravo!“– Monseiur Delire
