From the festival programme:
Those who associate jazzrock and fusion with the drab music that went by that name in the 1980s and 1990s will be surprised by New Morning. Drummer Jeroen Vrolijk's band abhors the poor excuse for jazz from that era. The foursome prefers the ingredients that once made the genre exciting: melodious guitar sounds, a powerhouse bass and on the nose drumming. Thus New Morning becomes a frontrunner of the new jazzrock, and with its new CD New Morning II the band has put itself on the map internationally.
