VENICE is the name of the upcoming debut album by the Jazz quartet DISTANCES.

VENICE is the name of the upcoming debut album by the Jazz quartet DISTANCES, that was founded by the Munich bassist Georg Kolb and the Venetian Jazz pianist Marco Ponchiroli in June 2014. They are accompanied by the brilliant young saxophone player Jan Grinbert from Latvia and the virtuoso Bulgarian drummer Nevyan Lenkov.

fascinating atmospheric pictures to a unique concert experience.

Venice is a city of mystical elegance that holds its place as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, but is in danger of becoming a living museum due to its high dependance of gigantic masses of tourists and more and more inhabitants moving away. Therefore the thematical focus of this conceptional Jazz record lies on the city at night - with all the shadows and shimmering myths of mysterious places, bars, ´palazzi´ and their various
