"The music that is created at the Amsterdam improvisation hall 100 will gradually be able to spread outside the capital. The debut album of the quintet Zwerv was recorded, and is filled with five free improvisations. Founder of the group is Henk Zwerver, a musical late blower who approaches the guitar rather than a percussion instrument than a chord instrument. That places him in line with English great-grandmother Derek Bailey. Sometimes the music of the fifth also reminds of the British free improvisation tradition. But there's more. Bassist Raoul van der Weide and drummer George Hadow (who have formed an ideal couple) know the music occasionally to pull out the pioneer music with a driving groove. With the rocking bass clarinet of Ziv Taubenfeld and the bright trumpet of Portuguese trumpeter Luis Vicente (visiting in Amsterdam), the music approaches the work of saxophonist Eric Dolphy and trumpeter Booker Little ".-Herman te Loo, Jazz Flash (via Google Translate)


Artist Biographies

"Raoul van der Weide (Fontenailles / Fr, 1949) played 6 years of classical violin in the Northern Netherlands Youth Orchestra. As a bassist he developed largely autodidactic but also studied classical double bass at John Clayton and Norma Brooks. Contrast point at Guus Janssen. Feel inspired by inspiration and improvisational practice in the free but unstructured views of various musicians like Paul Termos, Guus Janssen, Lennie Tristano, Misha Mengelberg, Jimmy Giuffre, Steve Lacy, Ornette Coleman, Derek Bailey, Charles Mingus and Munir Bashir.

As an improviser, the creative focus is on the development possibilities of open personal aesthetics in the broadest sense. The continued deepening of its own sound, intonation and power of expression - of the musical fingerprint - is considered important.Van Raoul van der Weide published the solo CD 'Passages' (GeestGronden # 24 / www.geestgronden.com) at the beginning of 2006, to which De Volkskrant and promising 4 stars discussion was dedicated.

Worked together in Bert Koppelaar's POINT OF ORCHESTURE, Paul Termos Trio, Guus Jansen Septet / Octet / Orchestra, Burton Greene Quartet / Trio Spazio Trio (with K. Bauer and Guenther Sommer), Luc Houtkamp Quartet, Ab Baars Sextet, Peter Zegveld projects ('Caspar Rapak' and 'Statua Tumultus'), The Gravitones (Winners Dordtse Jazz Prize 1995), Joost Buis & The Famous Astronotes, Sound-Lee! Quartet ('Plays the Music of Lee Konitz'), New Crosscurrents Sextet."

"George Hadow represents the newest wave of improvisers to hit the Dutch scene. Like many of the active newcomers, George is an expat, hailing from Devon in the UK. George first came to the Netherlands in 2011 to take part in the Dutch Impro Academy, where he studied with Han Bennink and Michael Moore, among others. He has quickly developed into a mature musician, playing with acute sensitivity as well as unbridled power.

The list of regular groups with whom he performs is impressive for its scale and diversity: The Blue Lines Trio, Mulligan - Baker Project, Terrie Ex/Raoul van der Weide/George Hadow, Aya ba yaya, Almeida/Dikeman/Hadow, Molino, Galm Quartet. George has also collaborated with Andy Moor, Roy Paci, Anne-James Chaton and Joe Williamson, The Ex and Cactus Truck as well as countless ad hoc combinations."

"Born in Israel in 1986, Ziv Taubenfeld is a young, up-and-coming talent on bass clarinet and one of the best improvisers around at the moment. He first studied in Israel, then in the Netherlands. He lives in Amsterdam and has worked with, among others, drummer Han Bennink, clarinetist Ab Baars and composer-pianist Guus Janssen. Taubenfeld is currently the leader of the trio Bones whose other members are his childhood friends: drummer Nir Sabag and bassist Shay Hazan. Taubenfeld also plays with the bands Kuhn Fu, Plots and XPE. Hazan is also from Israel and studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Drummer Sabag trained at the Israel Conservatory of Music in Tel Aviv. The trio's self-titled debut album was released in 2016. The second release by this Netherlands-based group is expected later this year."
