About the album

I hope you enjoy listening to these eight concerts as much as we had fun putting them together for you. On the vinyl release we have a selection of songs drawn from the CDs and digital version and some very special bonus tracks, that only appear on the LP’s.

In 2013 there was for me a very memorable night in a beautiful small Jazz Club in Cologne, Germany, where I got to play a duo concert with the great Michael Abene. From that concert we selected the immortal standard Cole Porter song “You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To“.

The Jazz Orchestra Of The Concertgebouw organized in 2016 a tribute concert to our own Europe’s First Lady Of Jazz, the legendary Rita Reys. One of her favorite songs was again from Cole Porter, which I did in the famous arrangement of Peter Herbolzheimer, “Love For Sale“. The other two special bonus tracks we took only on the LP’s are with the great Petar Beets Trio with Martijn van Iterson on guitar and Netherland’s iconic bass legend, Ruud Jacobs. What a pleasure and treat to have been on tour with this outstanding musicians.

I love performing with Big Bands and one of the first Big Bands I worked regularly together with is the “Millennium Jazz Orchestra“ of my dear friend and fantastic arranger Joan Reinders. We did a studio album in 2002 and many, many concerts throughout the Netherlands and also in New York. In 2019 Joan wrote a wonderful program of all George Gershwin classics and added the famous Matangi String Quartet. It was such a joy to do this program from which we selected “Summertime“ and “The Man I Love“ as special bonus tracks only for the LP version.
