January 2018

Sad to announce that I will soon have to say goodbye to this website that served me for a long time. But excited to announce that a beautiful and up to date new website is under construction and will be online in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile busy with several inspiring projects: first of all a double bill from my trio with classical/contemporary pianist Saskia Lankhoorn entitled 'Musings from the Lowlands' - A Dutch ECM Night, premiere beginning of February 2018. In March I will be combining forces with guitar wizard Raphael Vanoli in a duo project, work in progress.  More information soon to be found on the new website! 


April 2016

Very excited and grateful to have my new trio album 'Black Ice' released on ECM Records this month.

September 2015

After a wonderful but short summer holiday now back on track.
Looking forward to a busy autumn to come filled with concerts with ao Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet, Batik and Susanne Abbuehl. I am happy to anounce that Yuri Honing's album 'Desire' has been nominated for the Edison Award. Last but not least: I am very excited and quite honoured to have had the opportunity to record an album in Lugano last July with my new trio which features Gulli Gudmundsson on double bass and Jasper van Hulten on drums. Release is scheduled for spring 2016. More news to follow soon. 

May 2013

Happy to hear that, together with NY based pianist and colleague Kris Davis,  I received a 'honorary mention' at the Paul Acket Award 2013. This is a Dutch award for 'artists deserving wider recognition'
This month the new album of Susanne Abbuehl will be released, a singer with whom I've been working for more than 15 years. The previous album dates from 2005 and I am glad we will now continue our collaboration, together with Mathieu Michel - fluegelhorn and Olavi Louhivuori - drums.

February 2013

It has been a long time since I left a personal note here.
2012 has been a very nice year playing wise. Lots of inspiring concerts with my own quartet in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and more recently in Italy and Austria. I felt the band and the music growing each time.
The last weeks I have been working on new repertoire for the next recording, work in progress.
Looking forward to concerts with my 4tet, Yuri Honing and with Susanne Abbuehl the coming months.
In May the new album of Susanne entitled The Gift will be released on ECM
Hope to see you at one of the coming concerts!

June 2011

Very happy with the wonderful reviews 'Post Scriptum' has been receiving so far internationally. It has now also been nominated for the Edison Audience Jazz Award 2011. If you like our music feel free to vote on Furthermore I have been working on music for two TV productions the past months, concerts with Batik and preparing to dive into a Berliner studio with the Yuri Honing Acoustic Quartet. Looking forward to next season: solo concerts in Japan and hopefully many concerts with my own (and favourite) 4tet.
