Wonderful! Tune burns a trail right through the speakers. So modern, yet so vividly recalls the jazz-rock of the sixties... R&B riffs that swing, baby, swing. I hear a song like this, I can't stop smiling. No way to walk away from the tune and not be in a great mood. Enjoy!
About the track
Alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman is perhaps the most important and certainly one of the most enterprising Dutch jazz musicians of the time. As the co-founder of New Cool Collective (1993) and the leader of several of his own combos, he has built up an impressive catalog. This has rightly resulted in several awards, including the 2006 VPRO / Boy Edgar Prize. He has worked with Stan Tracey, Larry Goldings, Misha Mengelberg, Han Bennink, Idris Muhammad, as well as crossing genre lines to collaborate. But, as he explains, "I see myself mainly as a jazz musician. This is the music that I've always studied, and that I always wanted to be able to play. And I'm still learning and studying!" In his quartet Anton Goudsmit plays piano, Ernst Glerum plays bass, and Joost Patocka plays drums.
