Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Old School Band is the latest project of Dutch guitarist/composer Marnix Busstra. Together with his ‘friend for life’ bassplayer Norbert Sollewijn Gelpke he initiated this brand new band. Back in the early 80s they shared their first musical footsteps with the schoolband they played in, now it’s time for the Old School Band. In Marnix Busstra’s latest projects- the cooperation with renowned vibraphonist Mike Mainieri in the Mike Mainieri/Marnix Busstra Quartet, and his modern jazzband Marnix Busstra Band with pianist Rembrandt Freichs- the music was more purely jazzminded. In the Old School Band the focus is on funk! The classic combination of the electric jazzguitar and organ gives the music the sound and flavor you need to make it Read more really funky, and the choice for the most funky musicians you can find in The Netherlands completes the concept. Marnix Busstra wrote nine brand new compositions for this debut album; different tastes, all funky. The recordings are very straight forward, no overdubs or other tricks were used. It’s a pure registration of a band playing ‘live in the studio.’ Read less
