Here's the first review of the new CD 'Amphibian Ardour'! By Can This Even Be Called Music, who write: "With this new release, the band breaks new grounds, and sounds more inspired by Middle Eastern music than ever. It’s an album that deserves to be on everyone’s playlist!"
Thank you CTEBCM!

The new Spinifex CD 'Amphibian Ardour' is out on Trytone!
Amphibian Ardour is the fifth Spinifex studio CD, and the first one with tenor saxophonist John Dikeman. The album also features Flemish master trumpeter Bart Maris, who had already been part of Spinifex Maximus in 2015.
Amphibian Ardour includes compositions by alto saxophonist Tobias Klein, bassist Gonçalo Almeida, and music from Iranian and Pakistani Sufi traditions. It was recorded at Namouche Studio in Lisbon and beautifully mixed and mastered by Spinifex drummer Philipp Moser.
Dave Foxall (Jazz Journal, UK) wrote about the previous Spinifex CD ‘Veiled’: “ambitious yet unpretentious, tight, catchy, but also fearlessly exploratory and experimental.”

It is available at: http://trytone.org/wordpress_A/product/amphibian-ardour-spinifex/
and as download on bandcamp:
https://spinifex.bandcamp.com/album/amphibian-ardour
soon also on i-tunes and other digital channels.

Thanks to Sena Muziekproductiefonds for funding.

A nice review of Spinifex 'Veiled' by 'Can this even be called music?'!
"The experimental jazz quintet from the Netherlands is abrasive and seductive, and they have an outstandingly good ten-track album!"
