The inspiration sometimes comes from the rich jazz tradition. At other times all convention is thrown overboard and the group surrenders itself to their unbridled hunger for experiment. “Overstroomd” is, however, an extremely cohesive record that will be enjoyed by many a music lover. Just like in a stream, the modes on the record alternate each other, from softly rippling to various rapids and even some tsunamis!
As stated earlier, Moker has two new faces: the Spaniard living in Brussels Jordi Grognard on tenor sax and clarinet, and double bass player Lieven Van Pee, who we know from, among others, De Beren Gieren. The core remained the same. On guitar the leader of the pack Mathias Van de Wiele, who composed all the music. He is accompanied by his two flamboyant mates: Bart Maris on trumpet and Giovanni Barcella on drums.
