ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"When Ineke van Doorn sings, its not just some little song to the accompaniment of a haphazard jazz combo. Her lyrics and her voice are an essential part of the total music. Her singing, without words or with song texts, sometimes not more then humming, is simply one of the instruments of the band.... she herself is actually the band".
"The vocalist has an extraordinary voice which, without having to force it and without losing its timber, reaches whistling kettle heights.....a mature debut".
"The music which has almost entirely been composed by Marc van Vugt is based on contemporary music, in which van Doorn's voice is integrated with the wonderful instrumental contributions which give a kaleidoscopic view on the diverse ways jazz and pop music can be mixed".
"..... Between all the new jazz divas on stage Ineke van Doorn is a pleasant sound. The sound of the group is something different from the umpteenth version of the American standard repertoire and that is not a small accomplishment. Her easy, slightly veiled voice well suits the compositions by the Vandoorn guitarist Marc van Vugt, compositions which distinguish themselves with their rhythmic skill and warm harmonious climate, with echoes of Pat Metheny".
"The level is extraordinary high and this band should be able to do well even across the Dutch borders".

ABOUT INEKE VAN DOORN and MARC VAN VUGT
The music of jazz singer/pianist Ineke van Doorn and composer/guitarist Marc van Vugt is best described as a mixture of lyrical, voice orientated original jazz songs and adventurous, sound orientated improvisations. Some of our credits are a Dutch Grammy, international tours and the release of 10 CD’s.
We did important collaborations with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra, Het Nederlands Kamerkoor (the Dutch Chamber Choir), and created an improvised opera. As real musical chameleons we perform our original music internationally with our small jazz ensemble Van Vugt/Vandoorn (aka Vandoorn), with Big Bizar Habit: an 11-piece chamber jazz ensemble, and in solo and duo concerts.
