About the album

Boudewijn Lucas: bass Arthur Lijten: drums Tjeerd van Zanen: guitar Erwin Hoorweg: piano, rhodes & hammond
Rolf Delfos: alto-, tenorsax & vocals Marcel Reys: tpt, pcu & vocals Peter Broekhuizen: baritonsax, flute, pcu & vocals.This Dutch group was founded in 1996 by van Zanen, Delfos and Lucas. They selected a number of very fine musicians who had worked with some of the best bands and artists in Holland and abroad, all jazz & funk orientated. This CD contains a selection of their first three CD’s. The first, “Funny Sounds” (‘97, tracks 3, 6 & 10) flirted with “easy tune”, a retro-style, hot and hip in the London disco’s during those days. The hype disappeared, but The Auratones remained. The direction in the music changed to funky soul jazz, flavoured with latin & world. It proved an ideal combination of groovy music and the freedom of jazz improvisation: hot & steamy crowds can tell! The band gained a great live-reputation: an enormous drive, excellent music & presentation and humour on stage. The songs on the CD “Jazz, Jazz, Jazz” (’02, tracks 1, 4, 8, 9, 11 & 13) have a few common factors: a heavy swinging rhythm-section, tight horns and kick-ass jazzy solos. The CD “Mazzu Mazzu” (’04, tracks 2, 5, 7, 12, 14 & 15) marks a new leap in the development of the music of the Auratones. It is more subtle and the grooves are deeper than ever. The sound of the band becomes more and more unique.
