Groovexpress – Amsterdaam

Groovexpress is a collaborative music Smooth Jazz project, formed in 2010 by composer, arranger & producer, Mykeljon. 2017 saw the Recording Academy place Groovexpress and Mykeljon Winckel on the Official Ballot for the 59th Annual Grammys. A group of players of a caliber found only in those at the top of their game, Groovexpress masterfully fuse elements from the ‘jazz standard’ days to the fresh melodic sounds in the smooth jazz format. Groovexpress has been compared with such masters as Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power and even that of the funk delicious grooves of James Brown. Groovexpress manages to keep each album fresh with contemporary flavors, creating “upbeat, fun, sensual jazz” that is “ageless and timeless.

The 11 track Album Amsterdaam is a superb collection of strong compositions by band leader Mykeljon. It’s a wonderful celebration of smooth jazz derived grooves that pack a real punch. The blistering musical performances take the listener on a journey from start to finish. The title track ‘Amsterdaam!’ was written in a café in the heart of the canals in Situ!
