Album Notes
In 2015 I started a jazz quintet with drums, bass, piano, guitar and saxophone. Since then I've been writing new modern jazz music that connects jazz harmonies and melodies with a steady 'easy' groove. In August 2016 we performed at Tivoli Vredenburg Cloud Nine in The Netherlands with a larger ensemble. The quintet has been augmented with three singers (who take the role of a sort of string section) and a unique horn section (bass clarinet, french horn, trumpet/flugelhorn and flute). This addition of instruments has given me new ideas and sounds that enriched my arrangements and compositions. The result is a lyrical, groove-based, large modern jazz ensemble with soprano and alto saxophone as the lead instruments. On this EP you can hear both the quintet and the large ensemble recorded live and in the studio.
