Between the photos of the Cuban photographer Alberto Diaz Gutiérrez, better known as Korda, a performance by the Matthijs Geerts Group in the Cobra Museum in Amstelveen. Keyboardist and composer Matthijs Geerts plays with Thomas Pol on bass, Itai Weissman on EWI and Davy Andy Henket on drums. After many years of working as a session musician, now was the time to release his own record. In 2021 he released ‘Lost in Reverse’. He describes his music as: “a new template to connect the acoustic and electronic worlds. It is contemporary jazz in its most hybrid form.” Geerts plays three layered pieces from his new album with his group. Geerts: “Every composition has its own story to tell. Sometimes we call it energy, energy that we translate into music through composition and improvisation.”
Vrije Geluiden (VPRO) asked me to play a TV recording at the Cobra Museum, Amstelveen.
This session will be shot in May and will be broadcasted on 19th of June on NPO 2.
