“Around these musicians I am relàààxed!”

The repertoire of this new jazz 6-tet contains originals en standards, all arranged. The arrangements leave room for improvisation, unexpected twists and lots of dynamics.

“The arrangements offer space to all our instruments, including mine. Surely I am quiteIMG_0900-aa present on stage. But I also like my fellow musicians to feel the opportunity to express themselves in abundance.”
“Sometimes I’ve opened the arrangements to fit in a part of an original of my own. Just in the middle for example, and then return into the song. In You’ld Be So Nice I’m doing this only with the bass. The horns join us at the end of this break.”
