Tommy Moustache – EGO
Wed 1 November 2017 - 20:30
The debut album of the eccentric Rotterdam band Tommy Moustache appeared in the end of 2014 challenging reviewers with the definition of their raw instrumental jazz. A psychedelic trip with jazz, funk and elements of rock comes at the closest to a common consensus. Tommy Moustache run over well known stages and festivals such as North Sea Jazz, Jazz International, the Concertgebouw. Having won the Public Price of the Dutch Jazz Competition in 2016 they are coming up now with the new masterpiece named Ego. In comparison to the debut dedicated to their hero Tommy Moustache they step over now in the floodlights to the megalomaniac ode to themselves. According to the guys Ego is not only an album but a complete way of life.
Frank Zappa knew it already: ‘Jazz is not dead, it only smells funny’ (Rifraf).
The band has no trouble at all switching over from boggy grooves and exciting funk to the rocky blues without losing intensity (Popunie).
Line up: Jasper van Damme (alto Sax) ; Jorn ten Hoopen (guitar); Bas Kloosterman (bas guitar); Mark van Kersbergen (drums).
