This summer has featured a wonderful series of Saturday afternoon performances at Westerpark as part of Herbert Nouwens’ sculpture exhibition, Angels’ Share. Sadly, this Sunday, it comes to a close.
The Zomer Jazz Fiets Tour is one of the highlights of the Dutch musical year. The programming is always excellent and diverse and the novel idea to bike from stage to stage across the northern Netherlands’ charming landscape is so appealing we borrowed the idea for the last two editions of the Doek Festival.
This excellent video shows The Job on their tour through Japan which took place in March and April of 2014. Filmed and edited by Job member Jochem van Tol, this video offers a glimpse of life on the road with the quartet as well as some exclusive performance footage.

This Saturday afternoon, August 16, we have Oscar Jan Hoogland performing mobile piano at Westerpark as part of the ongoing Herbert Nouwens sculpture exhibition. Oscar is known for his ability to turn one of the most stationary instruments in western music into something surprisingly portable, as can be witnessed in his Bakfietsband (which will be playing the closing event for the exhibition).
