Here, the word 'jazz' has to be understood with the largest signification, meaning: no musical conformism, open mind, integration of other musical streams, adventures... Some particularities of the music played by 'Mezcal Jazz Unit' are given by the mediterranean feeling of the musicians, the reminiscences of traditional melodies, a real attraction for oriental music, a rocky energy, a sense of humor, and a mix between emotional introspection and a very specifical latin expressive attitude. 'Mezcal Jazz Unit' is a 'live' band. It's music is based on pleasure and communion between musicians.
