About the album

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 colors 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, somewhere in the middle of Weather Report, Tortoise and Jaga Jazzist.
Bassist und Komponist Martijn Vanbuel ist ein Weltbürger, der in Paris, Shanghai und Taipei gelebt hat und auf höchster Ebene mit Größen in Jazz, Pop und Weltmusik gearbeitet. Mit Orbit Folks vereint er all diese Einflüsse in seinem eigenen, wunderlichen Universum, für das er Klänge, Rhythmen und Farben aus jeder Ecke der Musikwelt entlehnt. Orbit Folks präsentiert Filmmusik, oft längere Kompositionen, aber Groove-fundiert und mit genügend Raum zur Interpretation. Stellen Sie sich klugen und hypnotischen World-Jazz-Rock vor, irgendwo zwischen Weather Report, Tortoise und Jaga Jazzist.
