 Notes & Reviews
The conception 'Bag Of Groovies' is simple: take a jazzband with acoustic instruments, modern grooves out of Jazz, Latin, Funk und Soul - take good care of the quality of compositions and arrangements - and then into the studio, this of course with the best musicians in town. The result is a Crossover 'a la carte', that really has a special flavour, different from the fast-food of our time. In pieces of the leader, of pianoplayer Aaron Wonesh and of bassplayer Uwe Urbanovsky the band really 'cooks' (a.o. Oliver Gattringer-d, Stephan Maass-pc, Christian Havel-g). About Martin Fuss: Born in 1960, his musical education started at the age of 12 with classical clarinet lessons - but shortly after he changed to tenorsax. He completed his studies at the Conservatory of Vienna (master of arts) and the Berklee College of Music (Boston/USA). as leader : 2006 - COMPARED TO WHAT Martin Fuss & Soulmates CD's Change The Rhythm / Vienna Soul Station/Bag of Groovies Credits: Ray Charles, Joe Zawinul, Natalie Cole, Toots Thielemans, Gil Evans, Bill Holman, Vienna Art Orchestra, Saxofour, Hans Koller, Karl Ratzer, Allegre Correa, Harri Stojka, Incognito, Ostinato, W.
