About the album

Artist: Jan Stavenuiter, Rini Swinkels, Makki van Engelen, Angelo Verploegen, Sander Hop, Louk Boudesteijn, Eric van der Westen, Jeroen Rol, Maurits Fondse, Miguel Boelens, Martin Fondse, Mete Erker, Vera Westera, Guido Nijs Right at the start of the 21st century a brand new burning band hit the stage: the 14-pieceband Groove Troopers! Combining the rich treasures of big band jazz tradition with the hot and vibrant beats of a double drum rhythm section, flavoured with a soulful and powerful voice, the Troopers display a highly personal view on now-a-days dance music: from Smart-Jazz to Hip-Beat to Big Band Trance. JJ-Tracks is proud to present the Groove Troopers debut album, entitled Zoom Zoo. The repertoire - 10 tracks - consists primarily of band members' originals: from the loose energy of 'Nina's Dream' to the deep trance of 'Absolution'; from the crazy 'Zoom Zoo'to the reflective 'Animal Stage', the music tells it all: get ready to be taken in groovin' captivity! The musical leader of the Groove Troopers is Dutch composer/pianist Martin Fondse, one of the most in-demand composers on the Dutch jazz scene. He wrote pieces for a.o. Eric Vloeimans, Ernst Reijseger, Nils Wogram, the Metropole Orchestra (project with George Duke),Big Band Hessischer Rundfunk Germany, and NPS Television. He also received composition commissions from the North Sea Jazz Festivaland the Rotterdam Jazz International Festival. In 1992, Martin Fondse founded the Martin Fondse Oktemble, his multi talented octet that acclaimed wonderful reviews in the international press. In 2000 he started the Groove Troopers.
