Album Notes
Reinier Baas' 'More Socially Relevant Jazz Music Ensemble’ is a brand new ‘all-star’ quintet, featuring five of the most interesting young musicians to hail from the upper North-Western corner of the mainland of Europe.

The ‘Ensemble’ has a fresh, distinctive, raw and slightly peculiar sound. With influences as diverse as Ravel, Lennie Tristano, Arctic Monkeys, Ornette Coleman, Flying Lotus and Human Feel, their music ranges from the intricate and sophisticated to the downright danceable. The unusual full-stereo line-up, edgy compositions and the relentless pulse of the rhythm tandem, provide the context for experiment, improvisation and jazzdancing.

'More Socially Relevant Jazz Music' features an eclectic mix of Baas’ compositions, an arrangement of a piece by Maurice Ravel, and brutally disfigured adaptations of some of the formerly most harmless American Songbook repertoire.

Reinier Baas - guitar, piano (#6)
Ben van Gelder - alto saxophone, clarinet (#9)
Maarten Hogenhuis - alto saxophone, editing (#6)
Sean Fasciani - bass
