OUT NOW on digital platforms: The Colour Of Blue (single) CCR058
Recorded in the pandemic lockdown. while working on music for a new album. Although known as a musician who publishes instrumental compositions, this song inspired me to include vocals. I decided to invite rapper MC Complex to my studio, a collaboration that went very well. At that time we could not foresee the currently increasing importance of the words ! The track also features Hungarian saxophonist Tony Lakatos and my Dutch musical friends, René Creemers (drums), Phaedra Kwant (bassguitar) and Jeroen de Rijk (percussion).
Some sights and sounds from a concert in January 2019. With Herman Wolters (keyboards), René Creemers (drums), Jeroen de Rijk (percussion) and Teun Creemers (bass).
