Swiss saxman Alain Brenzikofer formed Tonejuice as an international band project consisting of six musicians from Switzerland and England including our own Will Powell on guitar. Tonejuice plays groove-centered music in a warm and dark mood, with deep ballads, bouncing rhythms, odd meters and modal harmony offer a tasty juice for brain, body and soul. 

The new album "Rouge Fonce" was given a 4**** star review in this months's Jazz Journal. "This Anglo- Swiss sextet play smouldering groove-based music with beguiling modal harmonies that suggest a soundtrack to a late night drive around a modern European city. I like it more each time I play it, as the snaky melodic hooks of the original compositions insinuate themselves. Up front Brenzikofer's sound has a mellow bur mellifluous tone...." Garry Booth

This roadtrip will start off in Switzerland and end in England. On the road, finest Tonejuice shall be served every night - a European project full of relish!
