Identities are Interchangeable is a big band journey through Zenon’s music.

Listening to the record is like getting invited inside the communal mind of these four musicians. They core unit has been together for 16 years now. The way they open naturally to each other makes you open into the music. You feel like you are inside their heads looking around as the music massages you. It’s very smooth Jazz.
