O’s Notes: Marc is from Amsterdam but has studied music and performed in New York. He has creative DNA with a painter and an opera singer for parents. Mommaas plays tenor sax with his own take on modern jazz, a combination of fusion, some free jazz and bop. The rest of the band is Tony Moreno (d), Nikolaj Hess (p), John Hebert (b) and Rez Avvasi (g). The music ranges from the peacefulness of “Revision” to the racy open spirited “African FBI”. It’s a unique sound that grows on you.
