Back in 2010, this trio (plus Michael Moore on a few tracks) released an album, Avalonia. The album received favorable reviews, and concerts followed. They played the Bimhuis, to SITP programmer Tim Sprangers’ delight (review). Unfortunately, Flin van Hemmen decided to emigrate, so the three didn’t play together as a group for a long time. Until 2018, in this very series, when the group seamlessly incorporated 8 years of experience into an already amazing trio. We’re looking forward to seeing them perform again.Harmen Fraanje – piano | Clemens van der Feen – double bass | Flin van Hemmen – drums

Tetuzi Akiyama and Giovanni di Domenico are touring Europe this september. Giovanni is an Italian, lives in Brussels and has been traveled Japan, where he met Tetuzi. In this European tour, the duo becomes a quaertet with Tilburgian Amsterdammers Onno Govaert (drums) and Jasper Stadhouders (bass). Although Giovanni, Onno and Jasper are good friends thanks to the European improvisation music scene, the first time they played together was in Tokyo, about seven years ago. Both Jasper and Onno will meet Tetuzi for the first time. Promising!
