Frantasmagoria is a jazz quartet featuring saxophone, drums, double bass and electric guitar.
The music is inspired by great jazz composers including Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus but the first and biggest influence is the music of Thelonious Monk. We believe Monk created some of the coolest music forever inspiring and contemporary.
Our unique interpretation and spontaneous energy brings often unexpected and exciting flavours of latin, funk and even tango.
Our new album is now available, MONKERY, special thanks to Finn at Dyfi Fire for rehearsal space at his stove showroom in Machynlleth. Barmouth / Cerdd Y Burmo for support, inspiration and creating space for musical development. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Mike West at Our Lady Studio, Borth in May 2022.
