K Quintet

Something Else (self release)

Led by world-renowned Russian dancer Ksenia Parkhatskaya on vocals and Irish musician-composer David Duffy on bass, “Something Else” is the debut album from their K Quintet project.

Citing influences such as Oscar Peterson, Red Garland, and Ben Webster, standards by the likes of Duke Ellington, Richard Rodgers & Henry Mancini are subtly mixed with original ‘classic’ compositions, written by the husband-and-wife bandleaders.

In another nod to days gone by, the album was recorded at Vertigo Studios in Barcelona (Spain) – a haven of vintage microphones, preamps and tape recording facilities.
