European Jazz Stage: Woods and Strings
Celebrating a career that spans five and a half decades, we brought you alto master Phil Woods. In this programm we also offered two concerts where strings play first fiddle. The British clarinetist and saxophonist John Surman was accompanied by a classic string quartet and we have a young Dutch talent, Jeffrey Bruinsma. He is exploring the violin in styles covering jazz, world – and classical music. Then there was Esra Dalfidan a Dutch singer with Turkish roots. She won the Dutch Jazz Vocal Competition in 2008 and she mixes jazz with oriental traditionals.
