Banjax is the new name of the former Bender Banjax. Not only the group name was doctored, also the repertoire.
While this young fivesome used to be mainly inspired by the hard bop and post bop period, they currently choose the path of the Scandinavian jazz tradition with their debut album ‘Osa’. The compositions bathe in a specific atmosphere, minimalism is chosen instead of endless note fucking.
The repertoire is completely built up around pieces written by leader Erik Bogaerts, which are alternated by free improvisations in several strengths.
