Going Dutch : Part One  -  Sun Jan 22, 2017  |  02:00 pm
We have long been in love with the older generation of Dutch jazz musicians who have brought humour and imagination to the European scene for many decades. But there's a whole new group of younger artists, learning from their predecessors, but also tapping into other sources from across the musical spectrum.

What better way, we thought, to celebrate this new diversity than to bring together a group of players from both generations for an all day event, with a mix of established groups and new combinations created specifically for the occasion? Add in a couple of outstanding young UK artists in bassist Olie Brice (who has played several gigs at Amsterdam's iconic Bimhuis) and Tyneside's very own Faye MacCalman, and we have the makings of a hugely exciting day's music.

Over the course of two sessions, afternoon and evening, we will be presenting a mix of established groups and new combinations, with everything from solo performances to rip-roaring ensemble excursions. All in all, a brilliantly varied and imaginative spread of good things from the Netherlands.

Afternoon Session
2.00-3.00pm : Olie Brice/John Dikeman/Onno Govaert + Ab Baars Trio
3.15-4.15pm : Reinier Baas solo + Feecho (Kaja Draksler & Onno Govaert)
4.30-5.30pm : Olie Brice/Wilbert de Joode/Faye MacCalman + Baars-Henneman Duo

This concert is made possible by assistance from Dutch Performing Arts in association with the Jazz Promotions Network and Jazz North
