LOOT - Three Nights in a Row (Day 3)

Music written for Ab Baars, Oscar Jan Hoogland, Uldis Vitols and Onno Govaert

Three Nights in a Row! A challenge for the musicians that forces new them to go places unknown. History has proven that jazz and improvised music flourishes in this constellation that is not seen often in Amsterdam anymore. This is your chance to see a band at work in this way again.

"Let the piano speak and find out what it has to say." A physical approach to playing the piano formed the starting point for the compositions Oscar Jan Hoogland wrote especially for LOOT. With Ab Baars, Uldis Vitols and Onno Govaert, Hoogland has brought together the perfect band to play this new music. The musicians each stand strong in their own counterpoint and are masters of the heterophonic swing approach that's typical for most of the repertoire. And most importantly: they are incredible improvisers.

This concert is part of a recording residency of LOOT at Splendor. Next to the microphones in the room your ears are very welcome to register the making of LOOT's debut album. The music will be and will not be different every night.

“In this new work we find a powerful mix between clearly building on the tradition of jazz and fresh, playful experiments, in which we clearly recognise the signature of Hoogland.” Ben Taffijn, Draai om je oren
