    After the success of their debut album, Unmasked, the Austrian-Czech collective are back with their second release, EPIC. The quartet’s aspirations are indeed nothing but monumental; “The Beatles of jazz, that’s the plan,” says bandleader and pianist Simon Raab with a grin on his face. After listening to their new record, it is clear they mean business. With EPIC, the fab four put together by the Austrian pianist come one step closer to the Jazz Olympus. Whether a musical epic or the unconditional commitment to the diversity of post- modernism, Purple Is The Color’s new album features a playful synthesis of ideas. With their second album, the Viennese four prove that their presence can no longer be overlooked by the international jazz scene. Intense, inspiring and beautiful.
