ENTRE AMIGOS is the current project of the pianist and composer Günther Brück, a fabulous musical journey through different music genres, collected on an album between Cuba, Latvia, New York, Austria, Spain and Venezuela.
The international quartet crosses stylistic boundaries with compositions that utilize modern jazz harmonies and soulful, melancholic and passionate melodies based on rhythms that reflect the enormous diversity of traditional Afro-Caribbean music. Günther Brück is an extraordinary composer and bandleader whose new album is full of energy and poetry.
In addition to Brück’s long-time musical partner from various projects, the Venezuelan star percussionist Roberto Quintero, whose loyalty and commitment to Venezuela’s Afro-Caribbean heritage has already earned him more than 20 Grammy Awards, the quartet is regularly accompanied live by international guests such as the saxophonist Felipe Castro, the trombonist Luis Bonilla and the Colombian violin virtuoso Alejandra Torres.
“Brück’s compositions fascinate with their authenticity, racy solos and dominant percussion by Quintero, who is a master of his craft. (…) “Entre Amigos” would be a recommendation.” Concerto 4/2019

“To call this album Entre Amigos by Günther Brück magnificent and brilliant – or using another superlative epithet to describe the repertoire on it would be a gross understatement. It is so much more than most – if not all – words that could be used to describe its contents. To begin with these are superb compositions – written by an European artist inhabiting a Latin American skin. This time Mr Brück has let the sensibility of his musicianship penetrate the cultural topography of the songs, to listen with his heart and then used his uncommon genius for composition and arrangement to render what he heard in his heart. All of this is enhanced by the pianism of Mr Brück, his intelligent musicianship and cultivated sonority impress.” latinjazznet
“Brück’s arrangements are sophisticated, but always without losing authenticity.” DJ El Chino
“Günther is an extraordinary pianist, composer and arranger who captures us with every number.”El Killer de la Salsa
“Mr. Brück holds it down on the piano like the best of them. A fresh and new sound we are certain you will enjoy.“El barriomusic
“There’s so much rhythmic ingenuity; and Brück, quietly, behind the proceedings drops in some modern harmony on piano. This is all really fresh and new sounding.“ Peter Watrous
