Rens Newland

From Holland, Newland made his mark on the music scene through decades long work and dedication. Starting with his early years as a Pop guitarist, Newland quickly transitioned into Blues and Jazz. This evolution led him to be a part of the Jazz-Rock revolution, and the USA Billboards Charts’ success of his first album with the band Scope. Among his notable accomplishments over his more than 4-decade musical career, is his work as musical Director and Guitarist for Gloria Gaynor and for The Supremes. Newland is a quadruple musical threat. He is a guitarist, producer, composer, and orchestrator, he recorded a dozen - mostly Jazz or Fusion jazz - albums on his own name, plus several with projects like the famous Ostinato, and appears besides that on numerous albums as a side-man. In addition, he serves as a label director for Jive Music Austria.

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! Now finally in the Corona times, they did it. Finding the right singer is not easy, but they found him: Ric Toldon is a cool american guy (is also percussionist) living in Vienna, who even met Jimi Hendrix and was around at Woodstock and when the Stones played in the USA. As drummer the young Simon Springer was their first choice, as well as Rens' main keyboard man Martin Wöss for the piano and synth additions. The basic sound is of course build on Mr. Newland's guitars, here he used some of his dearest instruments, like Gibson ES 335 and L5, Fender Strato and Tele, Godin Red Line, Parker Fly and Takamine Acoustic Steel. The Tracks show the broad possibilities of the Blues in form and sound: Delta Blues, Funkblues, Jazzblues, Rockblues, Acoustic Blues 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, some are by Ric Toldon, like "Sneeky C" with humour and desperation at the same time.

Feeling Fine Against All Odds The Steady One

These are basically trio versions of all the songs from my former "solo" album "Family Trax", which are dedicated to his people (his tribe). The first production was very precise and with emphasis on the compositions and the many different guitars. Here on these recordings he got the thing more powerful, groovy and vivid by the added drums (Oliver Gattringer) and bass (Willi Langer). It brings up other essences of the characters he describes here. it's an unusual idea indeed to release two different versions of the same material! 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.

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!

9 Listen to your Ears 10 Bluesbooster 
12 About Tears

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.

Algorhythmo Typico

Being one of the pioneers and masters of fusion jazz, Rens Newland presents here kind of a new approach: with his younger fellow musicians, Wolfi Rainer on light drums and Andy Mayerl on upright bass, he plays mainly acoustic steel guitars (some tunes with his crunchy Jazz guitar) to come up with what he calls "bluesy acoustic fusion".
The concept is about bringing colour into a grey world.

She Does It Young Spirits About Humour
The Hill House Woman`s Taste  About Aesthetics 
 If you Try Hard, it Will Start Wittgenstein 

NEW!: We have free music sheets to some titles - further below at the links 

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!
Rens Newland - guitars, Uli Langthaler - upright bass, Joris Dudli - Drums, Stephan Mitterbacher - Keyboards, Herwig Gradischnig - Saxes
Guests: Paul Zauner - Trombone, Rudi Mille - Keyboards (plus recording & mixing!)
