Koen De Bruyne

This is a fine example of Belgian funky fusion, with a distinct dual trumpet front-line and obvious overtones from Placebo, Belgium’s most prominent jazz rockers. While Mr De Bruyne is the one playing the ivories, and occasionally unfurling a bed of synth syrup, it’s his bandmates who are the stars. The overt brassiness sometimes suggests Chicago’s early Chicago Transit Authority days. This is what the doctor ordered, with guest spots for the whirligig fiddle and a breathy Flora Purim-like vocalese. from mutant-sounds.blogspot
