About the album

The Old School Band is the latest project of Dutch guitarist/composer Marnix Busstra. Together with his ‘friend for life’ bassplayer Norbert Sollewijn Gelpke he initiated this brand new band. Back in the early ‘80s they shared their first musical footsteps with the schoolband they played in, now it’s time for the Old School Band!
In Marnix Busstra’s latest projects – the coöperation with renowned vibraphonist Mike Mainieri in the Mike Mainieri/Marnix Busstra Quartet, and his modern jazzband Marnix Busstra Band, with o.a. pianist Rembrandt Frerichs – the music was more pure jazzminded.
In the Old School Band the focus is on funk! The classic combination of the electric jazzguitar and organ gives the music the sound and flavour you need to make it really funky, and the choice for the most funky musicians you can find in The Netherlands (drummer Mark Stoop and organist Eric van de Bovenkamp) completes the concept.
Marnix Busstra wrote nine brand new compositions for this debut album; different tastes, all funky. The recordings are very staight forward, no overdubs or other tricks were used. It’s a pure registration of a band playing ‘live in the studio’.
