The Grand Cosmic Journey

June 10, 2014

Through the years, drummer Benoit Martiny developed with his bandmates an original musical style influenced by the mid-1960s. The Benoît Martiny Band was First Prize Winner of the 2008 Amersfoort Jazz Talent Award, and has been performing in many different venues in Europe and Japan.

Powered by the internationally recognized musical talents of clarinetist Michel Pilz, saxophonist Roby Glod and keyboardist Leon den Engelsen, The Grand Cosmic Journey extends the BMB experience back to this period when free jazz gave birth to krautrock.

The project is an attempt to revisit these golden years where music broke the boundaries of art and cultures, where music was imagined by some of the most innovative composers and sound designers of these last decades, such as Sun Ra, Charles Mingus, Jimi Hendrix, Hermeto Pascoal, and Frank Zappa.

Bio

The Benoit Martiny Band or BMB are a Jazz-Rock Band formed in summer 2004 somewhere in between a garage in Rameldange(LU)and the streets of Rotterdam(NL). The group consists of Benoit Martiny (LU) on drums, Sandor Kem (HU) on Bass, Jasper van Damme (NL) and Joao Driessen (NL), on Saxophones and Frank Jonas(NL) on guitar.

The music they play is composed by Martiny and is inspired by Jazz, Rock, Free Jazz, and Psychedelia. Over the years BMB has released 5 albums and 2 DVD’s. The band was nominated for the Dutch Jazz Competition in 2005 and won the Amersfoort Jazz Talent Award in 2008. Apart from touring all over Europe the band has also played concerts and festivals in Japan and Venezuela.

Over the years BMB collaborated with many other different musicians like Michel Pilz, Mark Lotterman, Itaru Oki, and Steve Kaspar. In 2014 they extended the BMB experience with “The Grand Cosmic Journey”, especially created for the “Like a Jazzmachine” Jazzfestival in Dudelange. The journey was continued in a sold out room in Luxembourg`s Philharmonie in 2019, an eclectic concert completed with Video projections and free improvisations. The concert was recorded and is released as an album called“Moons of Uranus” in 2020.
