This is the 2nd album of Fuse Bluezz! Rens Newland's roots were the Blues! Way back in the 60s in Holland. His journey went over Experimental Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jazz, Latin, Rock, Studio, etc.. But he loves  to come back to these roots now and then!  Co-initiator of the project is Peter Gruber, from whome came a lot of input and inspiritation and who plays the bass here! Vocals are again taken over by Ric Toldon! Drummer  is the young Simon Springer. Keyboard man Martin Wöss added some piano and synth additions. Again the basic sound is of course build on Mr. Newland's guitars, here he uses some of his dearest instruments, like Gibson Les Paul custom,  ES 335 and L5, Fender Strato and Tele, Godin Red Line, Parker Fly and Takamine Acoustic Steel. The tracks once more show the broad possibilities of the Blues in form and sound: Delta Blues, Funkblues, Jazzblues, Rockblues and more. Some instrumental tracks are of course also part of the concept! All the music is by the bandleader and most of the lyrcs are, one is by Ric Toldon and one by Lional Lodge, a former partner of Mr. Newland.

All titles recorded at ORANGE STUDIO Vienna - in Corona Times 2021, except A.04, which was recorded live at music club REIGEN(Vienna). As a follow-up for our album „Blues Indeed“ - (Jive Music JM-2100) we spared these tracks for the better days to come after Corona! That didn’t really work: other catastrophies came direct with it and after it! So it stays a „hoping and waiting“... All music was produced, arranged, engineered and mixed by Rens Newland

Myroslav Levytsky(p) and Rens Newland(g), both great personalities on their instruments, came together the first time in 2001. In the following years a cooperation developed itself between Braty Bluzu (the band of Myroslav and his brother Oleg) and Rens Newland. Myroslav has classical and eastern roots, Rens has Blues, Rock and Jazz, so western roots. They had a small Tour in Austria which resulted in a Live Album "Myroslav Levytsky & Rens Newland Project "One Autumn Concert" released in the Ukrain. This is the second album of just the two, again recorded in Vienna in Rens' Orange House Studio. It's mainly inspirational and meditative solo Piano pieces. Three tracks feature Rens Newlnd on steel string guitar.

Recorded live at Porgy & Bess, Vienna, Austria, Jan. 2023,.
As one of the pioneers in the European Jazz Rock/Fusion Jazz movement in the 70s, of course OSTINATO was also inspired by Miles Davis. Each of the individual band members in their own way: Tommy Böröcz was clearly impressed by Billy Cobham's rock drumming style, Andi Steirer was enthused by the role percussion started to play in groove music, Rens Newland really loved the approach of John McLaughlin. The musicians who joined later, such as Robert Riegler and Robert Schönherr, certainly included Miles in their playing, directly or indirectly through Joe Zawinul. Likewise, the ostinato horn section uses the same insights that Miles gained for the start of a more global, cosmopolitan style of playing. At this concert the group presented a selection of their own inspirational works from their albums, as well as some adaptions of Miles Davis tunes.

As Rens Newland's roots were in the 1960s Blues, the Electric Blues of John Mayall, Eric Clapton and in Holland Cuby & the Blizzards or Living Blues. and he always tried to keep this deep music feeling in all the projects and styles he did in the meantime, it was no big jump to get back into that and make a Blues album. He and his friend Peter Gruber (bass player) were talking now and then in the last years, that they should do such a project together!

This is a very emotional, interesting and important project by guitar artists Rens Newland
With a very precise composing system he made melody modules, blocks or modules
(how you like to call it), constructed out of the names of the people of his tribe. Additionally he tried to weave their personalities, their characters,
music tastes and moods into the compositions and arrangements.
The musical styles go from Funk and Jazz to Rock and Hip-Hop, but all in his range of taste!
Again he used a lot of different guitars out of his collection to get the right sound to each vision.

A broad spectrum of his composing as well as his playing is showed here of Rens Newland. He choose to double all the melodies with the Tenor Sax of master Herb Berger, because in the several gigs and recordings Rens found out, that the blend is perfect between him and Herb! Also the other fellow musicians, Wolfi Rainer on drums, Andy Mayerl on upright bass and Martin Wöss on piano act very keen and tasty, leaving room for the melodies and improvisations. The Bandleader uses a lot of different electric guitars, from the Jazz Gibson L5 to Fender Tele, even the Line 6 Variax makes wonderful appearences.
The style goes from easy going Groove Jazz and some light Funk to interesting Fusion ballads and Jazz sounds.

This was the first album of the austrian Funk/Fusion/Latin Jazz band Ostinato. At that time the band already existed for some years, winning talent competitions and already playing lots of concerts. A big milestone for the group was the tour to South-America. Tommy Böröcz came back with a head full of musical ideas and he made a bunch of great compositions, integrating three horns now to get a bigger sound! Rens Newland just came into the band before and started helping to organize the vehicle and composing for the project. Also several other prominent new personalities of the Vienna scene joined the band and the touring life started.
