Album Notes
The Spanish word ‘tocar’ means to touch, to feel, to handle, to contact, to sound, to play... the music of Tocar is about the joy
of life and sensuality. Music that seduces you and touches you with the excitement of the unknown, the desire to relax and have thrilling experiences at the same time. The space you experience in nature, the freedom you feel while travelling.
A warmth that embraces you and a breeze that caresses you.

Tocar displays a musical openness and it keeps exploring and crossing musical boundaries: tango, latin, jazz... Tocar is inspired by music from Astor Piazzolla, Bill Evans, and Chick Corea among others.Different genres are mixed together, just like mixing herbs and spices in an exotic dish.

The men of Tocar are experienced musicians. Accordionist Rik Cornelissen (1984) played with Bert van den Brink, Juan Pablo Dobal and Ben van Dungen. The pianist, Wim Warman (1969) worked with Carel Kraayenhof, Martin Verdonk, Yo-Yo Ma and
is arranger for Tango Extremo. Bass player Taco Nieuwenhuizen (1964) played with Lori Spee,
José Koning, Denise Jannah and Jhelisa Anderson (USA). Enrique Firpi (1960), drums, worked with Deborah J. Carter, Randal Corsen, Laura Fygi, Gerardo Rosales, Leonardo Amuedo and Lilian Vieira.

The jazz influence of accordionist Rik Cornelissen, the tango and Latin approach of Wim Warman, the melodious solos of bass player Taco Nieuwenhuizen and the subtle and cast-iron groove of drummer Enrique Firpi combine to make Tocar a unique and exciting band.


As we know, music is easy (and sounds at well) if you have the talent for it and rather impossible if you haven’t. This cd is a good exemple of my purposes.Beautiful compositions, a marvelous group sound, interesting solos, an amazing balance between brain and heart! This birds of paradise are touched by the grace. (Gustavo Beytelmann, pianist & composer)

An extraordinary original album where the musical influences of South-America and Western Europe strengthen each other and create a fiery palette of colors and styles. (Serge Lucien, JazzFlits)
