Meet Maarten Ornstein. He plays reeds and is a composer. Of today's music. This music.
In his own words, "This is what I do."
Ornstein is know for his work as an improvisor. After all, lots of his roles fit this Dutchman who as a soloist joined forces with Audible Liftestream, SfeQ, The Schonberg Ensemble, The Houdini's, The Ebony Band, various ensembles led by Tony Overwater and Martin Fonde Oktemble. He is also composer and arranger for the New Cool Collective Big Band and some of the aformentioned groups. This album showcases Ornstein's lyrical fluidity and imagination with maximum control on his reed instruments (clarinet, bass clarinet and tarogato).
