* Amaia went to Spain and South-America and we’re rehearsing now with our wonderful new pianoplayer Mi Jin Kim. We also decided to make a new Video-clip with short fragments of our music. You’ll find the definite plans about it later these months!
* Yes! Amaia got her master degree at the Conservatory of Utrecht with a very inspiring final exam. She translated all jazzstandards in Bask language and played and sung it by herself, accompagnied by the nice musicians Hans Mantel-doublebass and Alexis Makatselos-drums. Congratulations!
* Sadly the founder of jazzclub Uden – Edo Stouten – has passed away. A big loss for all, musically as personnally. The jazzclub members unfortunately decided to end all their activities. A sad story.
* Yes, we found a very nice pianoplayer: Mi Jin Kim, from Korea. Welcome!
* Singer Marit van der Lei
will join us this year, because Louise has a big project to work on: “Fiere Vrouwen”; a theatrical concertprogram with only female singers, musicians, writers and composers.
* Our pianoplayer Amaia has plans to live in South-America, so we were looking for a new female pianoplayer, who loves the oldstyle jazz and likes to travel through Europe!
