It is now 2013! A milestone in human development…end of the Mayan Calendar…dramatic changes occurring around the planet. Science and communication have developed at astounding rates, yet civilization has found no solution to eliminate war and slavery. At the turn of the century 2000, Joe organized a special group of virtuoso musicians that possess the ability to span the complete Diaspora of modern music. This group is able to synthesize and exploit to extreme, the many characters of Dance, Funk and Jazz music. This group is not limited by commercial restraints. Defunkt was a pioneer in the 20th century with the courage to merge dance & funk grooves with the energy and unpredictability and spontanity of “free jazz”. “Millenium is the epitome of the musical journey. Uncompromising and traveling from high-energy dance grooves into music that exploits the outer galaxy of experimentation, the groove is intense and the energy deliberate and exhilarating!
Defunkt Millennium features keyboard wizard Adam Klipple, drum technician and groove machine Tobias Ralph, extravagant and astounding bassist Kim Clarke, the extreme power and fluidity of Vincent Brijs on baritone saxophone and the relentless and ferocious Joe Bowie on Trombone/vocals/percussion.
