Wojtek Justyna Tree… Oh! at 12on14 Jazz Club
Funk on the bottom, jazz on the top. This sums up the intriguing fusion of the fresh jazzy sounds and funky grooves created by Dutch based group the Wojtek Justyna Tree… Oh!?. Polish frontman and guitarist Wojtek Justyna has a rich talent and imagination for composing pieces which lighten up your soul and bring out the positive in you. In addition Justyna has a versatile style of playing his instrument that stretches from jazz to rock and blues.
Wojtek Justyna is backed up by a drilled and skilled international group of musicians. Austrian session beast Daniel Lottersberger takes the bass position, while the drum seat is reserved for German Alex Bernath. Both have supplied their grooves in the band of funk legend Jamal Thomas (Maceo Parker). Portuguese born Diogo Carvalho is the newest addition to the group who adds his vast array of world colors on percussion.
Together these musicians deliver an amazingly tight and delightful grooving recipe on their 2015 debut Definitely Something. For this recording Justyna invited a number of international guests like Poliana Vieira (Re:Freshed Orchestra) and Jamal Thomas to add their own personalities into the mix. From heavy funk grooves to modern soul, from low down blues to African roots topped off with the Tree… Oh’s!? electric jazz sound Definitely Something has fusion written all over it!
