The August 8 tour was exhilarating and exhausting. Big thanks to everyone involved especially Eric from JazzBlazzt and Gilbert from Koffie en Ambacht.

MUSICIANS TALK On tour, over dinner, in the car, in the train, at airports, during and after rehearsals, musicians don’t tend to talk much about music, but when they do you get to hear ins and outs that somehow never seem to surface in articles.
In several round table discussions, Eric Boeren spoke with musicians he has played with over the years.
Han Bennink, John Engels, Michael Vatcher and Frank Rosaly talk about playing along with records on newspapers and kitchen chairs, about lefthanded set ups and about tuning a snare drum. “Jo Jones always played with the snares off!”
