Joanie Croes organizes this series of jazz (in a very broad sense) at the Stork Club in Amsterdam. An amazing living room in the middle of the red light district that open its doors for different cultural events. Joanie asked me to present something there, giving me complete freedom.
Together with Oene, Philipp, and Miri, we meet from time to time just to improvise and jam, and I thought it would be a great idea to open this completely free sessions to the an audience. It was a great evening!
With: Oene van Geel (viola), Philipp Rüttgers (synths), Miri Lee (dance).
For a couple of years already, Ig and I meet from time to time just to improvise and talk about music. She used to meet with George as well – for much longer already – so the three of us started having some meetings. During these gatherings, Ab would also join some times, either with clarinet or the shakuhachi. The sound of the shakuhachi with the three strings really stroke me, so together with George, we decided to do a recording.
This picture is the day we decided to do the recording. I hope I can update you very soon with the music!!
With: Ig Henneman (viola), Ab Baars (clarinet and shakuhachi), George Dumitriu (viola and violin).
Improvised music night at Cultureel Centrum Moira, Utrecht (NL). With Geerte de Koe (vl), Hessel Moeselar (vla) and Annick Odom (cb) we performed an improvised set using space and movement together with sound. Great night organized by BUI.
