A jazzy weekend ahead

Jurriaan Leijen in action

For people like me, that is, people living a bit north of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, there are opportunities coming up for having a great jazz weekend between Friday 25 March and Sunday 27 March. First there is a small but very cozy jazz festival named "Slagkracht" or "Jazztival" of which I am not sure. Anyway it is held in Provadja, Alkmaar. On Friday and Sunday there is a total of 5 Hammond jazz gigs on this festival which I list below:

  • Friday, March 25, 20:45, Cantaloupe

    • Huib Folmer - Sopranosax

    • Ronald de Rochemont - Bass

    • Christiaan Seemann - Hammond organ

    • Bram de Visser - Drums

  • Friday, March 25, 23:45, Juicy Organism

    • Ab Dekker - Drums

    • Jurriaan Leijen - Hammondorgan

    • Ton Mulders - Guitar

    • Dick Remelink - Tenorsax

    • Frank Stolwijk - Tenorsax

  • Sunday, March 27, 15:45, New Morning

    • Tim Eijmaal - Guitar

    • Lex Geerlings - Basgitaar

    • Maarten Helsloot - Hammond organ

    • Jeroen Vrolijk - Drums

  • Sunday, March 27, 17:45, The fabulous Jets

    • Freek Kroon - Drums

    • Elvis Sergo - Hammondorgan

    • Wouter Wierda - Sopranosax

  • Sunday, March 27, 21:45, Wild Hunt

    • Erik H. Blok - Trombone

    • Sebastiaan Cornelissen - Drums

    • Elvis Sergo - Hammond organ

    • Jaap Winder - Altsax

Refer to the festivals website for a complete program. On Saturday there's an interesting line up also, but nope, no organ jazz. If you are really dissapointed by that you could consider going to Middelie - drifting away from Amsterfam even a bit further - to listen to Rob Mostert. He just returned from the USA for recording a session with Rudy van Gelder who is responsible for innumerable Hammond jazz recordings. Anyhow, no complaining about a lack of things to do. Enjoy !
