Modern Madness Or Tribal Truth


Loplop; LLr 012, 2001

“Modern madness or Tribal Truth? The answer to the question is ‘both’, of course. M.O.T, the group headed by Utrecht-based reed player Steven Kamperman, combines the best of both worlds: exciting big city music, in the form of alert jazz with individual tours de force, with the enchanting warmth of multi-layered African grooves.

Cleverly interweaving first and third world, the group dares to be simple and direct as well, not letting harmonic or rhythmic acrobatics disrupt the experience. Inspiringly expressive!” – De Volkskrant, Frank van Herk
