Philipp Rüttgers Twists Of H.C. Andersen’s Untaped Fairy Tales

Every year the North Sea Jazz Festival commissions a promising Dutch jazz composer to write a free composition. In 2018, the honour goes to pianist and composer Philipp Rüttgers.

The result is an amazing album, full of colors, crazy rhythms and beautiful melodies. I really like the music (originally recorded by Jörg Brinkmann on cello) , and I had the pleasure to play with them on the So what’s next? festival in Eindhoven. We will play again on April in Utrecht, Amsterdam and Nijmegen.

With Philipp Rüttgers on piano and compositions – Heidi Heidelberg on voice and guitar – Oene van Geel on viola – Yonga Sun on drums and electronics – Myself on cello.
