An interesting review by Ken Waxman (jazzword.com) of the recent Spinifex CD 'Soufifex'. "...inter-cultural deconstruction ... appreciate the canny admixture that suffuses the memorable session."

Words of praise from heavyblogisheavy.com for Spinifex' recent Soufifex CD (Trytone)! "Soufifex also shares some traits of spiritual jazz and avant-garde metal, which decidedly gives it a unique sound. At over an hour long, the album has a lot to offer, and it’s consistently amazing throughout..."

A review of Soufifex by Danny de Bock on Jazz'Halo (also appeared on Draai om je oren). "With great musical talent, Spinifex succeeds in making connections. Connections which are not the obvious ones, but which do work."

While the new SOUFIFEX cd has recently been receiving very positive reviews, here is a review of our previous album, in Freistil. A 'Magazin für Musik und Umgebung' from Austria, still appears on physical paper! thank you Freistil! "This diversity of seeming incongruences ... is laid out with a great love for musical discourse, and organised into a non-compromising idiosyncratic sound aesthetic... Jazz to end all Jazz!"

Known for their super tight structures and razor-sharp improvisation, there’s a whole lot more to Spinifex than first meets the eye.

The very last SOUFIFEX concert of our European tour will take place at Rewire Festival in The Hague...coming Saturday - will we see you there?

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."
