HAN BUHRS/MICHAEL VATCHER
Unfortunately, Wilbert de Joode had to cancel, so Han Buhrs and Michael Vatcher will perform as a duo.
An explosive combination of two mainstays in the Amsterdam improvisation scene.
Han Buhrs – vocals | Michael Vatcher – drums
RODRIGO AMADO/JASPER STADHOUDERS/ONNO GOVAERT
Unfortunately, Dirk Serries had to cancel, due to circumstances.
On August 28, the prolific Portuguese saxophone player Rodrigo Amado and veteran experimentalist Dirk Serries met for the first time for a duo concert at JazzBlazzt. This concert was released on limited cassette on Colin Webster’s label Raw Tonk Records. To celebrate this release, they’re touring as a duo.
Guy Peters wrote (freely translated): “Amado’s music is mostly situated in the simmering, soulful versions of free jazz. The tenor saxophone player stays connected to the tradition, even when his improvisations dive deep into improvisation. Very unlike the music of Dirk Serries, who started out playing industrial, noise, and ambient music. So this duo combines soulful music, with a Southern sensibility, with an abstract, detached sound.”
On this night, Amado will team up with Amsterdam locals Jasper Stadhouders and Onno Govaert to play as a trio.
Rodrigo Amado – tenor saxophone | Jasper Stadhouders – guitar/bass guitar | Onno Govaert – drums
