About the album

Two high-profile duos active in Dutch jazz: Anton Goudsmit / Oene van Geel and Mete Erker / Jeroen van Vliet. They have combined forces and play in various combinations (duo, solo, trio, quartet): EstaFest. Four unique improvisors, each a match for the other, getting the very best out of each other. Music at the cutting edge, taking new directions ‘à la moment’. Each contributing their own brilliant, short pieces without predetermined sequence or combination. Audience and players are swept away by the power of the moment. The musical result is exciting, magnificent, hilarious and breathtaking.

  • Unieke line-up (Piano, sax, gitaar, viool/altviool) van twee duo's samengevoegd tot kwartet die zorgt voor een geweldig geluid!
  • Duidelijke, melodieuze stukken, die een zeer sterke ritmiek hebben, er is hier geen bas of drums nodig!
  • De sterke persoonlijkheden van alle vier de musici komt ook als enorm krachtig tot uitdrukking in het kwartet
  • Anton Goudsmit/Oene van Geel en Mete Erker/Jeroen van Vliet zijn de twee duo's die zich hebben samengevoegd in deze nieuwe, waanzinnig goede combinatie
  • Jazz die bomvol zit met improvisatie en inventiviteit
  • Het resultaat is opwindend, magnifiek, hilarisch en gewoonweg adembenemend
Ein Gitarren-Violinen-Duo (Goudsmit, van Geel) und ein Piano-Saxophon-Duo (Erker, van Vliet) tun sich zusammen und formen ein Quartett - immer noch ohne Piano, Bass, Schlagzeug. Ungewöhnliche Besetzungen ergeben ungewöhnliche Klangerlebnisse und für die Improvisatoren ungewohnte Freiheiten. Die vier renommierten Musiker wissen sie zu nutzen, mit klugen Arrangements und Kompositionen, die Strukturen vorgeben, ohne den Gestaltungswillen bei der Improvisation zu hemmen.
