The Toughest Tenors
Well-kept Secrets is the third album by the Berlin jazz quintet The Toughest Tenors. The band, led by the two tenor saxophonists Bernd Suchland and Patrick Braun, gets straight to the point: fresh and virtuoso, rough and direct, the band proves the sustainable energy of authentic jazz. They take it seriously, the music that has proven its timeless legitimacy since the 1950s and 1960s. And that with a repertoire that consists of real discoveries: long-forgotten pieces in the tradition of the legendary two-tenor formations are extracted from the inexhaustible archives of jazz and brought back to the stage.
