Five in Orbit brings together the musical personalities of Ramon Fossati, Laurent Bronner and Olivier Brandily in a collective project that includes all jazz languages. Together with Nicolas Rageau and Luc Isenmann, they offer us a unique, luminous and communicative music. Five in Orbit have fed on the sources of jazz transmitting vitality, energy and a special ability to enjoy music.

Their original compositions show an especially well cared for writing, sound textures and arrangements, in a well-organized “chaos”. Always in search of new timbres to enrich their compositions, Five in Orbit  also plays with the sound of shells, prepared piano, flutes, gongs and the songs of birds.

After the release of their first work Five in Orbit (Quadrant Records – 2006), the European label Fresh Sound New Talent produces their second album FrEaKs in 2010. Seduced by their originality, film director Isabel Coixet includes their music in her documentary Aral, the lost sea, with Ben Kingsley’s voice.
