CD Review: Bruut.

Maarten Hogenhuis (alto); Folkert Oosterbeek (Hammond); Thomas Rolff (bass); Felix Schlarmann (drums).
Bruut, a  band from Amsterdam, describe their music as Superjazz and it isn't a bad description incorporating as it does many disparate elements that mix effectively together. There's very much a 50's/60's feel to it particularly with the vintage Hammond sound that rocks and rolls behind the cutting edge alto. Not that it is all one big rave there are moments of great sensitivity as well but it is the go for broke tracks that click with me. The drive, the tension building, is at times unbearable as Hogenhuis slides with a serpentine angularity around the powerful riffs laid down by Oosterbeck and reinforced by Schlarmann and Rolff as they take a Rockin' Rollercoaster ride on the Boogaloo Line.It's as if they're saying, Never mind The Moon we're heading off to Mars, maybe Jupiter - they need the heat we generate!
Check them out here or on Spotify.
Released in The Netherlands on the Dox label Bruut is available in the UK on Discovery Records.
