Basic Borg started as a quartet in The Hague 2005. Musical leader Manolo Cabras, envisioned an electro-acoustic band that playsstructures while keeping the fresh approach you can find in improvisation. Influences of Miles Davis, Paul Bley, Ornette Coleman can be heard.

In the summer of 2010 they were offered a residence in the Musiques Aux Présent Féstival, Narbonne, an occasion to put 5 years of bandwork on tape. Basic Borg took this opportunity to invite the Italian Tenorplayer Riccardo Luppi that shares their musical spirit and the same love for surfing on the boarderlines of structure and non-structure.

Compositions of Manolo Cabras, Lynn Cassiers and Matteo Carrus.

‘Leur album “I wouldn’t be sure” nous emmène dans des sphères différentes. La voix de Lynn Cassiers, les effets électroniques que la jeune chanteuse gère, la contrebasse et les compos de Manolo Cabras, le sax free de Riccardo Luppi, la batterie d’Oriol Roca et le piano de Matteo Carrus se conjuguent pour nous offrir une musique nouvelle, sensible, intelligente pour une nouvelle ère.’

‘…Voilà assurément une musique innovante, fruit d’une démarche très personnelle, qu’on se réjouit de découvrir en concert.’
Claude Loxhay(JazzAround)
‘…Ma al di là delle singole personalità è il suono della band che affascina l’ascoltatore e fa diI Wouldn’t Be Sure una bella testimonianza di come il linguaggio del jazz possa rinnovarsi con freschezza e creatività.’
