Matthijs Geerts Band
‘’Contemporary jazz in it’s most hybrid form’’ Matthijs Geerts Band brings a new sound that has yet to be found in Europe. Blending acoustic and electric elements seamlessly. All this reinforced by a musical dreamteam of Thomas Pol, Michiel Stekelenburg, Jesse Schilderink and Davy Henket.
Only a few jazz players have experienced the evolution that pianist and composer Matthijs Geerts did. Captivated by dazzlingly fast runs, harmonic structure and atmospheric sound he created a new idiom that he describes as 'Contemporary jazz in its most hybrid form’
This new sound, that blends acoustic and electric elements seamlessly, he recorded on CD together with his All Star band consisting of Thomas Pol (double bass) Michiel Stekelenburg (guitar) Jesse Schilderink (saxophone) and Davy Andy Henket (drums).
Lost in Reverse has been streamed 80,000+ times since its release on October 15 and has been broadcasted on Radio 2 and Sublime FM. His unique and stylistical approach of playing truly makes him a pianist of the next generation.
