Sunday at De Ruimte was recorded last year during the Doek LIVE! Festival. A tour of the Netherlands was expected this winter, thanks in part to the Balcony Scenes fund by the Fonds Podiumkunsten.
Last fall Oscar Jan Hoogland and Han Bennink released an excellent album of their long standing duo, Goede Reis, on ICP Records. This March they performed with the duo at the Bimhuis as part of our collaborative series, The Impro Train. No audience was allowed, but cameras were. Watch the two cruise, splatter, jip and flrp over compositions of Misha Mengelberg, Thelonious Monk, Paul Termos, and Cor Fuhler, as well as some originals and fully improvised pieces. …and swing, they also swing!
Jasper Stadhouders was featured in the OPTION series presented by Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago.
Jasper performed solo and was interviewed by Ken Vandermark. You may have missed it live, but it’s still up on YouTube so check it out!
