Amsterdam – June 7th 2022
Dear listeners of instrumental, partly improvised frantic jazz dance music,
The debut album of my new trio with Kit Downes (Hammond B3 organ) and Jonas Burgwinkel (drums) is out now on Dox Records! Visit our Bandcamp page to order a CD, or use the promo code newsletter20 to get a 20% discount on the digital album (available in a range of high quality file types). Also available through all major streaming platforms.
We will be performing at the Cologne Jazz Week on August 14th, and at the Fabrik Jazzfestival in Frankfurt on November 18th. More shows to be announced soon.
In other news: many events in Italy coming up this summer, including a long stint at the wonderful Südtirol Jazzfestival and a 5-day masterclass in Fabriana (Kneebody, Michela Lombardi and others will also be teaching).
Lastly, the third instalment of #oneminuteradio is available at my Bandcamp page. The series will be concluded in the fall. More news soon!
#oneminuteradio 2 out now!
Amsterdam – August 3rd 2021
The second instalment of #oneminuteradio (11-20) is out now on Dox Records. You can find links to all major digital platforms here. As ever, the best way to support the project is through Bandcamp. Follow the project on Instagram.
Furthermore, the good people of Mondriaan Jazz and PAARD, Den Haag have made this registration of Ben van Gelder and myself playing Monk’s ‘Bye-Ya’ with the legendary Han Bennink on drums. It is a true honour for us to play with someone with such a deep understanding of this music, and I am more than proud to have some of our performance on tape.
Although the past year and a half has been challenging to say the least, we have been provided with the opportunity to register many concerts in high quality. A duo with the great Martijn Vink, my latest project Reinier Baas’ Relief Party, a set with Benjamin Herman’s Bughouse and collaborations with Ben van Gelder, Ramón Valle and Ahmed El Maai can be found here.
The Peter Gall Quintet – ft. Rainer Böhm (piano), Wanja Slavin (alto sax), Felix Henkelhausen (bass) and Yours Truly (guitar) – has been awarded the first prize at the BMW Jazz Welt Award.
Lastly, I’m looking forward to meet and play music for you again. First up are duo with Ben van Gelder at Summer Space Impro in Amsterdam, and trio with Han and Ben at the Zomerjazz-Fietstour in Garnwerd, Groningen. More dates here.
