Here's a lovely review of our latest cd by Rui Eduardo Paes, jazz.pt: "...inspired directly or indirectly in that mystical chain of Islam... in short: a miracle." We had a great gig at Tor 9, Bremen last night, sharing the evening with the fantastic Ni! from Lyon. Many thanks to Tide and the crew! Tonight Schieszhaus, Zeulenroda!

Spinifex is on the road for the 2nd leg of the March tour! Tonight at Tor 9 in Bremen, sharing the evening with the fabulous Ni!
For the recent gigs, Spinifex received some very nice reviews. Gerhard Emmer, Kulturk(r)ampf:

"Spinifex flooded the hall with a flowing, captivating sound, which entirely fulfilled the ensemble's aim, which was to reconcile the spiritual transcendence of sufism with Western forms of free, intensive music."

Stefan Uhrmacher, Saarbrücker Zeitung:
"... fuses influences of Asian and African music into a boiling brew... those looking for the extraordinary with oriental flair and jazz exuberance will find what they want here."

A very nice review of the new Spinifex SOUFIFEX CD by Herman te Loo in Jazzflits! "The typical hammering staccatos (reminiscent of Louis Andriessen and the Haagse School) appear regularly. They have a hypnotising effect ... think of the whirling dervishes... there is room for airiness and lyricism as well."

Holly Moors (moorsmagazine.com) about the new Spinifex SOUFIFEX album (Trytone):
"Exciting, full of humor, and, at times, to tell the truth, slightly addictive. What a great record!"

A superpositive review of the new SOUFIFEX album (available at trytone.org)!
"Every note radiates joyfulness, and they all fit together perfectly... it would be a surprise if this album wouldn't turn out to be one of the nicest jazz albums of the year 2019."

On January 8, the new Spinifex album SOUFIFEX will be released. The cd launch concert is on January 18 at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam (as part of the Trytone 20 festival). Here is a short preview to the music! SOUFIFEX is inspired by Sufi traditions from different parts of the world, and features original compositions by Spinifex musicians, a piece by Mohammad Reza Lotfi and a traditional from Somalia. The cd was recorded at Room 13 Studio, Ghent, expertly mixed and mastered by Philipp Moser and wrapped in beautiful artwork by Gonçalo Almeida.
After the festive cd-launch concert at the Bimhuis (Jan. 18th, in a double bill with Celano-Badenhorst-Baggiani), we'll also play Jazzblazzt, Neeritter on February 15th. March 7-24 we'll be on tour in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland.
