Trumpet player Bart Maris (°1965) is a musician from the outskirts of jazz. It's not that he doesn't like the downtown club scene. It's that Maris enjoys the arguments and discussions with different genres and different musicians too much, to be able to choose one particular course.
It isn't surprising then that he pops up in a multitude of project pools and groups that are outside of the mainstream.
He becomes entangled in a frenzied affair with two Moogerfoogers and a loop machine, in a solo performance.
With the band, Electric Barbarian he doesn't hesitate in merging hip-hop with a distorted trumpet.
With the quartet Kamikaze he mingles improvisation with rock
