The Jamal Thomas Band (USA-EU)
I am working as Musical Director since 2009 side by side with the ex-drummer of Maceo Parker: Jamal Thomas. In 2018 we will release the new album "Funk Don't Move" featuring artists such as Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones) and Rodney "Skeet" Curtis (Parliament Funkadelic)
Wojtek Justyna TreeOh!
"FUNK ON THE BOTTOM, WORLDJAZZ ON TOP"
The Wojtek Justyna TreeOh! fuses the energy of funk-jazz, the colors and rhythms of world music with fresh sonic explorations. Formed in Holland by Polish guitar player Wojtek Justyna who is recognized for his sound and versatility, the band consists of members from different parts of Europe: from Austria, bassist Daniel Lottersberger whose heavy groove is supported by a true festival of rhythm courtesy of funk drummer extraordinaire Alex Bernath, from Germany, and Portuguese percussion wizard Diogo Carvalho who also commands the Moog synthesizer. This gives Wojtek a thick, rich base for his singing, melodic guitar phrases to float on top of.
This is my Stockholm connection, which just started. After meeting vibraphone player and composer Anders Åstrand at a drum clinic in Portugal in October 2016, we met then again with his phenomenal bassplayer Mikael Berglund in Stockholm in February 2017 and recorded this album in one week. You just know right away when it clicks with fellow musicians.
Website and other promotional platforms will come soon.
