“…Busstra simply shows up with a load of killer instrumental music that falls under the jazz spell.”
After having been introduced to us under Mike Maineri’s penumbra, the Dutch guitarist rounds up some of his landsmen and sets sail to show off what he can do on his own.
With an easy rolling style that isn’t quite smooth jazz and doesn’t go overboard on the angularity that comes with a lot of Euro jazz, Busstra simply shows up with a load of killer instrumental music that falls under the jazz spell.
Avoiding reliance on memes and iconography, while you might hear echoes of someone or another here and there, this set and sound stands quite well on it’s own. Tasty new sounds that are welcome throughout.
