Retrospective Quintet is a forward thinking, collaborative jazz ensemble featuring saxophonist Nicola Caminiti, vibraphonist Juan-Diego Villalobos, pianist Gabriel Chakarji, bassist Hamish Smith, and drummer Marcello Cardillo. Formed at the beginning 2021, this ensemble came together under the guidance of Kendrick Scott and underwent an intensive rehearsal and development phase in the first half of the year which led to recording our first album. The debut album from Retrospective Quintet is set to be released in 2022 and features eight of our original compositions from all of the band members. This ensemble was formed as a ‘composers collective’ and each band member composes for the band with a specific sound, yet open mindset that allows for deep musical-conversation and creativeness on the bandstand.
