2016 The Grand Cosmic Journey/BYP

[The Grand Cosmic Journey]

Formed in 2004, the Benoit Martiny Band's roots are in
the dusty garage of its leader's house, in the small
Luxemburgish village of Rameldange.

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 the
Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Hungary, France,
Belgium, and Italy.

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 Benoit Martiny Band experience
back to this period when free jazz gave birth to

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.
