Coming up…


Here’s a heads up on some cool stuff coming up in this coming period. On February 6th the Marzio Scholten Quartet will be playing at P60 in Amstelveen. On February 26th the great Dutch saxophone player Benjamin Herman and I are teaming for an exclusive concert at the ‘Special In A Cabin With Houseparty‘. Very excited about this!! Other bands will be playing as well. In March we’ll be heading to Spain with the Marzio Scholten Quartet for a four-day tour. We’ll be playing in Gijon, Bilbao and Gerona. Really looking forward to that one. So there’s lots of great stuff coming up this year and heading your way; lots of music, ideas and concerts. For a complete list check the tour page. Stay tuned for more info and check the site regularly for updates. Have a great year!

2010 has been a great year for me; I married my beautiful wife, my new album came out (which is getting awesome reviews), I’ve played with so many fantastic and inspiring musicians, we had a great album release tour and so much more. I’d like to thank all of you – friends, fans and colleagues – that made this year so special for me. I’m really inspired to make more music and can’t wait for the new year to start! Here’s a live track of a new composition called ‘Voids, Echoes and Whispers’. It was recorded during the World Of Thought release tour and features a guitar solo, and a saxophone solo by Yaniv Nachum. This is my way to say ‘thank you’. I hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas.

All About Jazz’ managing editor John Kelman has selected World Of Thought as one of the best albums of 2010 in the category ‘new discoveries’! A great honour! Check it out here. John Kelman wrote a great review of World Of Thought earlier this year as well.

Coming Friday December 3rd we will play at Paradox in Tilburg for the final concert of our World Of Thought Release Tour! It will be your last chance this year to see the Marzio Scholten Group in its complete line-up featuring Randal Corsen, Yaniv Nachum, Stefan Lievestro and Mark Schilders. It has been a great tour so far and we would like to end it with a blast. Show starts at 21:00 and entrance is only €10,-. Get your tickets here. We hope to see you there!
