Frans Hals Kwintet (euro jazz)
This group is build around
musicians from Haarlem, NL. After years of pop, (fusion) jazz and the first
fusion bigband in Holland (Big Band Loenen) there was a need to play more acoustic
jazz without electronics, inwhich my compositions from the 1970 till 80's (euro
jazz style) play a central role for the quintet. New pieces are written
for the quintet and there was material for 3 cd's. Big motor for the group was
the inspiring drummer from Brainbox and FOCUS Pierre van der Linden. Two cd's
are made (in small numbers, 500 each).
The first cd"Another Step" (1993) is with
Floris Mulder on guitar and the second cd "TRY" (1994-95)is with guitar player Hans Kunneman.
Pieter Riedstra - trumpet, Pierre van der Linden on drums and Ernst Oosterveld piano.
Double bass Henk Scheffer,
