O’s Notes: Dutch guitarist Marnix Busstra has a personal sound that is characterized by the teams he performs with. While he typically plays the lead lines, he allows other band members to shine. In this case the whole is better than the sum of the parts. Bassist Arnold Dooyeweerd, Rembrandt Frerichs (p) and drummer Pieter Bast were more than up to the challenge. Our favorites were “Down and Up Again”, “Wave Swinger” and the bluesy finale, “Between Blue and Brown” in this upbeat original set.
