HI5 was founded in 2011 and has released 6 albums. The latest album Southern Inspection Tour was recorded live at their China Tour in 2019 and reflects the artistic and logistical influence their extensive touring did to their music – that’s why this album is both rocking & edgy and electronic & forward thinking – but still creating music in the self entitled genre “minimal jazz chamber music” – with playing only original music. HI5 was awarded with several jazz awards, including the Grand Prize at the Bucharest Intl. Jazz competition, Jimmy Woode European Jazz award & Joe Zawinul Prize.
