The most important Dutch prize for a jazz album. The jury about our album MIRABEL:

“A daring sound expedition that certainly sounds as exciting for the listener as it must have been for the musicians themselves. The result is a collection of colorful and expressive improvisations.”

Edison website: https://www.edisons.nl/jazz/edities/2019/

We feel very honored! Many thanks to Edison Jazz / World, and to everyone involved in making Mirabel: best producer ever Ruben Samama, super engineer Dieter Claeys, awesome master engineer Fabian Tormin, visual wonder Anouk van Kalmthout, great spirit Joost de Haas, SENA Music Production Fund, Performing Arts Fund and our dear board from Stichting Kapok!

Coming February 2018 we will play The MIRABEL TOUR. 10 concerts across the country to promote our new album. Last year we have been refining our new sound, music on the basis of improvisation; adventurous fast pieces alternate between slow, cinematic lines.

To present this new music in the most striking way, we present the album in a extraordinary setting. Under the name MIRABEL 360° we are producing four concerts  in which the audience is situated in a circle around the band. With a sound system of eight speakers, light objects and projections, unique color and sound worlds are created in which you are submerged. MIRABEL 360° is going to be an intimate but overwhelming experience.

The actual kickoff of The MIRABEL Tour is going to be in Broedplaats Lely, in Amsterdam and works as an ideal location for this project. We are really looking forward to these concerts and hope you will be there to join us.

Planetary Sunrise, our project at Oerol 2016, is done. It was a magical experience with 9 sold out concerts in the sand dunes of Terschelling, featuring the music of Terry Riley and Kapok, illuminated by hypnotic projections. Thanks to all our collaborators: the Ragazze Quartet, Slagwerk Den Haag, and Blauwe Uur, everyone who helped and supported this project in any way, and thank you to our audience for sharing this experience with us. We are planning to stage the show again in the future, in The Netherlands and abroad. Onward! 🙂

The Riley CD is out

It’s a very different thing compared to what we normally do, so we’re curious to hear what you think.

Unfortunately, our concert at the Leidse Hofjesconcerten on Monday, May 16, has been canceled. The reason is the bad weather forecast. We hope to be back in Leiden soon!

Edison
It’s been 2 years since we’ve won the Edison Jazzism Publieksprijs. For us it symbolizes the support that we have received from you, and that makes us happy and motivates us to continue to make the best music we can make.

The fact that we are nominated again is really flattering and feels like a reward for our efforts on GLASS TO SAND. But if you feel like voting, please do!

Last but not least: check out Remco’s face on the picture! Never had there been a happier drummer to win the Edison.
