    Exploring Music E42 The Long Arc of Jazz part 1 of 2 with Rens Newland and Martin Fuss

    For this episode, which is titled ‘The Long Arch of Jazz’ Rens Newland and Martin Fuss, who collectively run Jive Music Austria, dig in deep into the traditional and the extreme corners of the music that has influenced everything. Rens is a master guitarist from Holland who has made his unique mark on the music scene through decades of tireless, dedicated work. Starting with his early years as a pop guitarist, he quickly transitioned into Blues and Jazz. This evolution led him to be a part of the Jazz-Rock revolution, and the USA Billboards Charts’ success of his first album with the band Scope. Among his notable accomplishments over his more than 4-decades musical career, is his work as musical Director and Guitarist for Gloria Gaynor and for The Supremes. Rens is a quadruple musical threat. He is a guitarist, producer, composer, and orchestrator, he has recorded over a dozen - mostly Jazz or Fusion jazz - albums under his own name, plus many more with other projects like the famous Ostinato, plus he is on numerous albums as a side-man. Martin’s musical education started at the age of 12 with classical clarinet lessons - but shortly after he changed to the tenorsax. He completed his studies at the Conservatory of Music, Vienna (master of arts) and the Berklee College of Music(Boston/USA). He is one of the most demanded studio and session players as well as jazz soloist in styles ranging from small jazz groups to big band and also plays in orchestral settings. Since 1991 he is teaching at the University of Music in Vienna and is endorser for Schagerl Saxophones and D'ADDARIO PERFORMING ARTISTS. The EMP theme music players are Joe Schirl on bass guitar and Peter Mayerhofer on hand pan. The music played through the conversation was composed, engineered and mixed by Lionel Lodge.
