The musicians of EJM met at the 2008 IASJ Jazz Meeting in Riga, Latvia. They were coached by bass player Gene Perla, USA who became their manager. EJM recorded two CD's on the record label of Gene Perla: "Odysseia" and "LIve in Sud Tirol". Tracks can be heard and the CD's can be puchased at: http://pmrecords.com/EJM.shtml

"The IASJ Jazz Meeting in Riga, Latvia was a great opportunity for me to get to know great musicians from all over the world, to make music together, to connect.
The ensemble that had been formed by Gene Perla turned out to be a very promising combination of musicians: from the first tone we played together there seemed to be a common musical language which we continued to speak over the years. We recorded our CD "Odysseia" and toured through Estonia, Austria, Italy and the USA.
Gene Perla has been a very important mentor and teacher to us, in musical but also in organizational matters. I will never forget the time we spent together in his house on the East Coast when we toured in the USA in the fall of 2011."
