I’m very proud to announce that my new album ‘World Of Thought’ will be released on October 2nd 2010 on O.A.P. Records. ‘World Of Thought’ contains nine new tracks and features Ambrose Akinmusire (trumpet), Yaniv Nachum (tenor sax), Randal Corsen (piano), Stefan Lievestro (bass) and Bob Roos (drums). From September on we will start promoting the new album and in October, November and December we will hit the road with the ‘World Of Thought’ Release Tour. For dates check out the tour page. Music and more info will be online soon. Stay tuned!!
Me at a small, but very nice gig, trying out some stuff. More pictures at the bottom of this page.
From now on, every now and then, I will be posting videos on Vimeo. Videos of concerts, interviews, promo stuff and things I like; starting with four clips of a concert we did in Mexico-City a few months ago. We had a great time over there and now this concert is partly available for all of you to enjoy. So, enjoy!
Coming week I will be playing at both the world renowned North Sea Jazz Festival as well as the North Sea Round Town festival, both in Rotterdam. On Monday, July 5th at 22 hrs, you will find me playing in Dizzy with Iman Spaargaren’s European Union Quartet during North Sea Round Town. On Friday, July 9th (17:45 hrs), I am playing at the North Sea Jazz Festival (stage: Volga) with the Marike van Dijk Quintet (w/ Franz von Chossy, Ruben Samama and Joost Kroon). After last year’s performance at NSJ with my own band, it is a great honour to be playing on this wonderful festival again. Looking forward to it and hope to see you there!
