About the album

A new collaboration on the jazz scene: Tenor saxophonist Alexander Beets shared the stage last year in Thailand with singer Judith Nijland, where the idea originated for a new project: Trav'lin' light. It is a CD of jazz standards with traveling as a main theme. An energetic collection of famous tracks like Take the 'A' Train and Come fly with me in surprising arrangements and tasteful specials. But also the less famous songs hit the spot, like Voyage from Kenny Barron or the Swedish folk song Dear old Stockholm, both with lyrics by Judith. The result of this new collaboration is a beautifully varied and refreshing album that pays homage to the true jazz classics. These classics are performed tastefully by the band and the singer.
