EXTRA INFORMATION

JAZZFEST MINIFEST

Preview to Jazzfest, ‘undoubtedly the best jazz festival in Amsterdam’ (het Parool), with three promising ensembles: Koeniverse3, Anton Goudsmit & Jett Rebel en Mabassa.

At the start of the new year Jazzfest Amsterdam treats us with a special preview concert. The Amsterdam jazz festival organized by musicians will have its seventh edition on Marc 17 at Studio/K. As a preview, this mini festival and new year’s celebration at the BIMHUIS will feature a selection of the most interesting and versatile musicians from Amsterdam. They will collaborate, challenge themselves and the audience, and they will rock the house.

The electric Wurlitzer piano plays an important part on the debut album Two Cities by Koeniverse 3, the band of young Rotterdam pianist Koen Schalkwijk. Bass clarinet player Joris Roelofs, who can be heard on the album, will perform with the band as well.

What will happen when two wizard performers join hands? Jett Rebel is known as ‘the prodigy of Dutch pop’ (OOR) and Anton Goudsmit as ‘the most amusing guitarist in The Netherlands’ (de Volkskrant), but their one-off duo might sound very different than you would expect.

Mabassa is Portuguese for ‘twin brother’, an appropriate name for this versatile Afro-Brazilian duo featuring two singers and multi-instrumentalists: Breno Viricimo from Brazil and Nate Dizco from Amsterdam.
