ABOUT THE BAND
In the coming Spring of 2024, the Amsterdam based, award winning Guy Salamon Group are coming back with a brand new album: NO FUN INTENDED, their 3rd album to date, featuring all new compositions in the distinct style of this adventures octet. Ignoring all boundaries of genres and styles, the Guy Salamon Group mixes influences of swing with Jewish hymns, Irish folk with punk-rock, Nino Rota with Frank Zappa, children's songs with Balkan music, and Duke Ellington with free improvisation.
"Kaleidoscopic, brilliant madness of the Israeli jazz drummer and composer Guy Salamon, who lives in Amsterdam. His compositions from swing, punk to polka spin around in a merry-go-round full of musical joy." Dutch national newspaper NRC
