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.
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!
I’m very proud to announce that World Of Thought has been awarded the number 6 spot on the Volkskrant Top 10 year list for the best jazz albums of 2010!
