Bright and breezy jazz fusions on the latest album from globetrotting bassist Martijn Vanbuel and his group Orbit Folks.
Orbit Folks’ debut album “Six” brings a new sound to Challenge Records described as a mix of Weather Report, Tortoise and Jaga Jazzist.
Bassist-composer Martijn Vanbuel is global citizen who has lived in Paris, Shanghai and Taipei, and worked at high levels with notables in jazz, pop and world music. With Orbit Folks, he combines all of these influences into his own whimsical universe, for which he borrows sounds, rhythms and colours from every corner of the musical world. Orbit Folks presents cinematic music, often longer compositions, but groove-based and with enough space for improvisation. Think intelligent and hypnotic world-jazz-rock.
