ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This latest album from Groovexpress is the product of a weekend of filming and recording six tunes for video, live on location at Glenbrook Vintage Railway, located in the picturesque surroundings of Waiuku, New Zealand.

Recorded live in its entirety in a phenomenal 3-hour session – the band, complete with full live performance rigs plus recording equipment, performing on a flat-deck railway car, with a recording studio set up in a neighbouring passenger carriage – ‘Live at GVR’ epitomises the freshness, live energy and improvisational magic that has earned Groovexpress sustained airplay on some of the biggest jazz radio stations across the globe. Featuring three charts from their 2014 album, ‘Ukrainian Doll’, alongside three new tunes from their upcoming studio album, ‘Amsterdaam!’, scheduled for release in late 2016.

What people are saying about Groovexpress:

“… upbeat, fun, sensual jazz with a retro spin that will inspire you to throw swanky parties and hand shake your martinis while playing ‘Ukrainian Doll’ as the soundtrack! […] A band of highly accomplished individuals with deep resumes… Groovexpress is the new face of Smooth Jazz!”
— Sandy Shore (President, SmoothJazz.com Global Radio)

“The cut is fantastic, with a clean, innovative sound that is so needed in the contemporary jazz realm these days. It certainly isn’t the same-old, same-old. ‘Ukrainian Doll’ stands out as an attractive and shining new piece of music.”
— Steve Hamilton (Owner, K-HIGH [KHIH-DB], Denver, CO)

“… one of the most interesting and entertaining smooth jazz albums you could ever hope to hear.”
— Heath Andrews (ReviewYou.com)
