In November I played with the best youth bigband fromAmsterdam, The Jazz Focus Bigband, conducted by the wonderful Peter Guidi.
It was for the 25th edition of the Kennemer Jazz Festival in Beverwijk.
Special guests were Humphrey Campbell, one of our very best singers, old friend and master piano player Cor Bakker and spectacular artist Pink Oculus.
With our Baileo Music Productions we also booked this main act on behalf of the festival.
Life is good when I am allowed to think conceptually, book and play with people (who's talent) I like at the same time.
In the photos you see, besides some of the fine young musicians and me, (above) Peter, Humphrey, Cor and (below) Pink Oculus, Peter, Cor and programmer of the festival Kees Koek.
This July I was in Switzerland to visit the brand new 'Le Nest' museum with Ivo Witteveen.
'Le Nest' is a museum build on the birth ground of Nestlé in Vevey to commemorate the companies 150th anniversary.
Ivo composed most of the music that can be heard in 'the experience' part of the museum.
Here you are guided through past, present and future of this giant international company and it's challenges.
Last year I played just about all of the percussive grooves and sound effects that are part of the music in Ivo's studio in Amsterdam.
Obviously it was interesting to hear our work on 'the crime scene' itself.
And obviously it was good to pay a quick visit - just around the corner - to the Montreux Jazz Festival too!
(And the Patek Philippe museum Genéve.....)
Percussion Loops HD is a vast library with hundreds of percussion loops and samples, played by a pro player and purpose built for iOS! Use them with your daw - a.o. Garageband, Auria, Cubasis, Multitrack Daw - (plus AUDIOBUS SUPPORT) or let them loop within the app itself. Nothing is programmed or synthesized, but played live by me.
