Marnix Busstra Band Short Info

The Marnix Busstra Band was founded in 2011 by its name giver, Dutch guitarist and composer Marnix Busstra. Joined by piano talent Rembrandt Frerichs, the ever creative Arnold Dooyeweerd on double bass and the inspirational force of drummer Pieter Bast, Busstra introduces a unique band that will definitely help broaden the jazz horizon.

Marnix’ compositions are the starting point of the band. He’s been writing music for various bands for years, including his own Buzz Bros Band and the band that induced his international break-through, the Mike Mainieri/Marnix Busstra Quartet.

Musically, this band is a continuation of a development started by the quartet that Marnix co-leads with the renowned vibraphonist, Mike Mainierii. The result can best be described as lyrical, multifacetted jazz that centers around a profound interplay of the four musicians. The compositions vary from melodic and intimate, to exuberant and witty, to emotional and strained – and vice versa. And while all members of the band are virtuoso musicians, they will only use their instrumental abilities to strive for magic. Musical magic.

The first album of the band, ‘Sync Dreams’, is released by BuzzMusic Records in 2013, and received amazing reviews – as mwe3.com’s Robert Stevenson wrote: “Sync Dreams is one of the most accomplished guitar-centric jazz CD releases of 2013.” The second album, ‘Firm, fragile, fun‘, is also released by BuzzMusic Records, August 2015.
