Idiosyncratic, Rotterdam-based band Tommy Moustache released their debut album in late 2014, challenging critics to define their ineffable brand of raw, instrumental jazz. ‘A schizophrenic trip drenched in jazz, funk and rock’ is the consensus they seem to have reached to describe this explosive album. Determined to perpetuate the legacy of their idol – the pseudo-historical figure Tommy Moustache – the band has dedicated their eponymous debut album to this illustrious personage.

After bedazzling the stages of reputable Dutch festivals like the North Sea Jazz Festival, Jazzfest, Jazz International and being voted audience choice in the 2016 edition of the Dutch Jazz Competition they have come up with a new masterpiece: “EGO”, full of daring improvisation, rock riffs, humor, mood swings, rhythmic and melodic adventures and everything else these four men, supporting appropriate facial hair, could come up with. EGO is not just some album, it’s a way of life...
