After the first double album “Infèrencies”(Fresh Sound Records, 2012), Sirvent is now arranging some well-known compositions in the history of Jazz, like FALL (W.Shorter), NAIMA (J.Coltrane), TIME REMEMBERED (B.Evans) or  also some standards from the american songbook, BODY AND SOUL or INVITATION.

The idea is to conserve all the compositional outfit of the octet, with small solos and all the time there is something happening in a background level, thinking more like a chamber ensemble, but mixing with the improvisation and with all that brings Jazz to the music. And all this instead of doing it on original compositions, like on the first album, is now printed on this iconic songs of this iconic composers and musicians.

The only Sirvent´s original is a pretty simple blues that brings air and good flow.

We can say that this “Flax-Golden Tales” are told with the goal that the listener really travels through the music and through the arrangements of Sergi Sirvent, made for this unique ensemble.
