This record has outstanding, clean and expressive rhythmic trumpet arrangements, a bit in the genre of early Frank Zappa (Grand Wazoo, Waka/Jawaka), but more dynamic, funky and rhythmic: it gives an ambience of winners! there are trumpet, saxophone, clarinet and flute, so that these wind instruments take a huge place in the music. There are also omnipresent & complex electric guitar, keyboards (Fender Rhodes among others) and very elaborated bass & drums. It is jazzy with all the catchy & rhythmic rock elements, plus some progressive tendencies. It is a very joyful music: you play it after a victory, a success or just simply for the joy of feeling happy. It will induce positive and pleasant moods. There are really fast parts, and the music is rather loaded; the omnipresent rhythm is very changing: it is never dull! Hard to believe they are a Dutch band. The sound can be very American funky jazz rock. There are not enough bands like that!
