Modern madness or tribal truth?
Shifting rhythmic patterns spawn inspired solos.
M.O.T, the group headed by Utrecht-based reed player Steven Kamperman,
combines the best of both worlds: exciting big city music, in the form
of alert jazz with individual tours de force, with the enchanting warmth
of multi-layered African grooves.
You really can't beat these guys, they have a very clear-headed
idea of what they want to do and pull it off with a quiet bravado that's just
a joy to hear. Highly recommended. (JazzNow.com)
Cleverly interweaving first and third world, the group
dares to be simple and direct as well, not letting harmonic or rhythmic acrobatics
disrupt the experience. Inspiringly expressive!. (De Volkskrant)
Experimental without getting esoteric. Intense pieces
and great soloing (Leids Dagblad)
