Joe Locke – vibes,  Jaka Kopa─Ź – alto sax,  Ameen Saleem – double bass,  Vladimir Kostadinovic - drums.

US vibes master Joe Locke named this quartet Amaranth after a plant because – like the plant itself - this band is a seasonal perennial which flowers once a year to share its offering!
This European-American quartet is currently set to tour Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany & the UK and Joe enthuses that ‘the occasion of our meeting is joyful and meaningful for the four of us and always results in some special music.’
This is a rare opportunity to catch up with one of America’s most charismatic and likeable jazz musicians, working with a superb European lineup.
Amaranth’s repertoire is derived from many influences -American Jazz, Celtic and folk traditions and contemporary chamber music.
