“Farcical Built for Six” (2010)
Roister Records (Roist 04)

“As with previous releases you can’t escape the feeling that not only are these guys very good at what they do, they seem to have a lot of fun doing it.”—PARIS TRANSATLANTIC

“But the index of influences isn’t what makes Respect work as a band. What makes them work is that they are a band, very much so. Five of the six members contribute compositions, but there’s cohesion to the playing; the band arrives with a single purpose. They don’t use, reference or borrow from bebop, in other words. They integrate it. It is, in this case, a crucial distinction – while they may be playful, one thing the band isn’t is ironic. They play good jazz straight up, even if they come at it from several angles, often at the same time.”—ALL ABOUT JAZZ

Farcical Built for Six is a special digital-only album, available through Respect’s Bandcamp store (respectsextet.bandcamp.com) as well as iTunes and other online retailers.
