European Jazz Stage: Sit Right Here: North Sea Jazz Festival
In this program, highlights of one complete night of music from the Madeira hall at the 2007 North Sea Jazz Festival. It’s a sanctuary of intimate and delicate music, played by experienced musicians with impeccable taste and style. Joe Lovano joined the Bob Brookmeyer New Art Orchestra who played the wonderful songs and arrangements of its leader. Bert van den Brink and Jesse van Ruller offered a duo concert on piano and guitar. They are masters of delicate detail, yet they never lose their swing. Finally we settled in with trumpeter Marvin Stamm and pianist Bill Mays in an easy and sophisticated musical conversation. Daniel Frankl hosted.
