Three sets by two ensembles. Go to one, go to them all, either way it’ll be a fabulous evening.
Saxophone, piano and percussion form the sound of Hupata!, alongside a wonky, wobbly, rickety, going hog wild wagon filled with toys, which transform and take shapes of birds, elephants, camels, taking you for a journey.
Workshop 11.00 -13.30 and 14.30 – 17.00
Doek has been offering a series of workshops at the wonderful Amsterdam venue, Splendor. The past few months we’ve had to cancel workshops because of corona regulations so we’re very excited that Eric will be able present this workshop Saturday. If you’ve been missing opportunities to work with other musicians, here’s your chance!
“In my workshop I would like to work with you on solo playing within a group context also known as collective improvisation.
This June, the Vancouver International Jazz Festival will feature performances from three Dutch trios, all of which are Doek related.
The Dutch focus will premiere on 26 June 2021 at 17:30 (PST) on the YouTube channel of Coastal Jazz.
