About the album

Is it jazz? Is it funk? Is it soul? The music of Dutch based band The Auratones is best to be described as soul-jazz with Latin and world influences: original, funkin’ hard and danceable. Jazz with a beat: an ideal combination of heavily grooving music and the freedom of jazz improvisation. Hot & steaming crowds can tell! This is their new smashing album on Supertracks Records.
  • Inclusief de wereldhit van de band Focus – “Like Hokus Pokus”, opnieuw gearrangeerd
  • NU-jazz met de wortels diep in het verleden, gespeeld door enkele van de beste musici van de jazz-, funk- & world scene in Nederland
  • De laatste jaren heeft de band een grote reputatie opgebouwd: ze hebben een enorme drive, spelen excellente muziek en presenteren alles met veel humor
  • The Auratones speelt vaak met een aantal fantastische gastmusici zoals: Thijs van Leer (Focus), Candy Dulfer en Gerard Presencer (UK)
  • "They might not be known yet by the bigger crowds, but what a band!" - De Telegraaf (biggest newspaper in The Netherlands)
Ist es Jazz? Funk? Soul? Am besten lässt sich die Musik der holländischen Band 'Auratones' beschreiben als Soul-Jazz mit Latin- und Worldmusik-Einflüssen. Originell, sehr funky und tanzbar. Jazz mit Groove: die ideale Kombination und immer mit der Freiheit, zu improvisieren. Gäste bei Livekonzerten können davon berichten: die Tanzfläche kocht!
Einige Titel erkennt man auch hierzulande: Nicht nur ältere Semester erinnern sich an die Band 'Focus' und ihre populären Hits wie 'Hocus Pocus', 'Sylvia' oder 'House Of The King' - und Focus-Leader Thijs van Leer ist hier wieder mit von der Partie!
