Rens Newland was born in Holland, where he started as a jazz and fusion guitarist, with the well-known band Scope. 1977 he moved to Vienna and has successfully developed his carreer, on the one hand through his collaboration with internationally renowned musicians such as Toots Thielemans or Benny Bailey, and on the other hand through his experiences as a composer and arranger for the Austrian Radio Big Band (ORF Big Band). In this new project, in which all the tracks were written by Rens Newland himself, he combines down-to- earth blues elements with multicultural influences, sometimes also using weird, new sounds. The basic framework for this sound painting is formed by his trio: Joe Dudli on drums / Uli Langthaler on acoustic bass / Rens Newland on electric guitar, which is supported by some special guests from the Austrian Jazz scene (Rudi Mille and Stephan Mitterbacher on keyboards, Paul Zauner on Trombone, Herwig Gradischnig on tenor saxophone, ...). Newland’s skilfully played improvisations alternate with musically sensitive stories. For example, “She Does It” is about a woman who inspired him to write many compositions and here the atmosphere of the album becomes really sensual. “Music is like a woman’s touch - Jazz is sexy” could be seen as the basic message of this CD.
The guitarist (Holland-Austria) opens us a powerful world of melodic feelings!
