“…some intriguing sounds with strings along with a simpatico team…”
Dutch guitarist Marnix Busstra makes some intriguing sounds with strings along with a simpatico team of Rembrandt (gotta love it!) Frerichs/p, Arnold Dooyeweerd/b and Pieter Bast/dr. He makes some exotic sounds with an electric sitar on a sleek and flowing “Earth Tone” and a bouzouki on the exciting and driving “Peasant’s Party.”
On guitar, he can get a bit rocky on the electric “Between Blue and Brown” and the fuzzy “Octoforce” and goes a bit angular on the title track. “Wave Swinger” has a gentle lilt that tips the hat to Pat Metheny in sound and concept, while “Desolation” has a lonely chamber feel as Frerichs’ piano makes some wonderful counterpoint. Varied and very nice!
