The Dutch trail

This year marks the addition of a third national showcase, again outside of the marathons. "Sounds of the Dutch Underground" will feature a host of young Dutch musicians at Nublu on Sunday 12 January at 7PM. Moving away from the trail blazed by iconoclasts like Willem Breuker, Misha Mengelberg and Han Bennink, this young crop seems to be as interested in electronica as they are in improvised music, as in the case of Binkbeats and of Niels Broos & Jamie Peet. Of special interest are Tin Men & The Telephone, a rare case in which the political connotations of a jazz project are as strong as its musical side thanks to an original blend of compelling piano trio music with voice samplings of the world leaders that have been shaping the international discourse, for the better or the worse. Theirs promises to be one of the most rewarding sets of the festival. To complete this soiree the compelling new project by saxophonist Tineke Postma, with Jonathan Finlayson, Matt Brewer and Dan Weiss.
