Iordache's jazz funk album Garden Beast was recently released by his own record label, Fiver House Records in Bucharest

The album is inspired by Iordache's own garden and the animals and plants within it, as well as nature's own rhythms and cycles.

The band is a septet which features saxophonist Iordache, trumpet player Sebastian Burneci, trombonist Florian Radu, guitarist Dan Alex Mitrofan, keyboardist Toni Kuhn, bassist Utu Pascu, and drummer Tavi Scurtu. It was recorded at Studioul de Baza in Iasi by Vladimir Ivanov and Utu Pascu and mixed by Utu Pascu. A special guest was Turkish vocalist Sanem Kalfa, who sang beautifully on “Magnolia".

All the tunes were composed and arranged by Iordache.

The artwork was created by Medicine Madison.

Garden Beast was made possible, financially, through a campaign on the Romanian crowdfunding platform We Are Here, by 115 of the band's most dedicated fans.

A limited edition of 100 vinyl LP's is due to be released around the end of April 2014.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
