About the album

Efraïm Trujillo: saxophones: | Anton Goudsmit: guitar | Jeroen Vierdag: bass | Martijn Vink: drums

“On the surface its all swing, while underneath all kinds of sliding disturbances take place. And when you think that they’ve really lost their way this time, they reunite with a bang. This to the great delight of the audience ‘and’ the four musicians, who seem surprised themselves as well...” (Mark Minnema, Noord Hollands Dagblad)

'The quartet of guitarist Anton Goudsmit (...) performs an intense and concentrated funk jazz that makes time fly (...)' (Frans van Leeuwen, NRC Handelsblad)

'Goudsmit's pieces jump at you like enthusiastic sledge dogs. (...) You have rarely heard Jeroen Vierdag play with such joy, which also counts for Martijn Vink and Efraïm Trujillo.'
(Koen Schouten about the album ‘Live op het Dak’, Volkskrant.)

'The Ploctones plays the most exciting Dutch jazz since the rise of trumpeteer Eric Vloeimans ... the album 050 is the new explosive standard we all hoped for. *****'
(J.P. Heck about the album '050' De Telegraaf)

Die vier Top-Jazzer unseres Nachbarlandes spielen schon seit Jahren zusammen, aber als "Ploctones" ist dies ihre erste gemeinsame CD. Hoch energetisch, mit einem guten Schuss Funk, dann wieder swingend oder balladesk. Aber nie langweilig oder gleichförmig - dazu sind die vier viel zu experimentierfreudig. Die Kompositionen stammen überwiegend von Saitenkünstler Goudsmit, über den der 'Guardian' meinte: 'The kind of musician that makes you wonder where the fire escape is.'
