Primary Instrument: Guitar

Anton Goudsmit

With his ardent and passionate guitar playing the versatile and innovating Anton Goudsmit developed into a musical Chameleon without losing his recognizable and characteristic style. His miscellaneous compositions are the base of poetic improvisations and flashy power performances. A critic of the British 'Guardian' described Goudsmit as: 'the kind of musician that makes you wonder where the fire escape is'. He graduated cum laude at the Amsterdam Music Conservatory in 1995 and today he can be reckoned as one of the most influential guitarists of the Netherlands.

”What a feast. Four tastefully inventive men with character and obstinacy that enter a great conversation with one another.” Tim Spranger - Volkskrant - 04-05-2011

“Maddening, how everyone always comes up with new elements and it does never collapse for even a minute.” Amanda Kuyper - NRC - 12 Mei 2011

“It is the perfect illustration of what Estafest stands for: Music on the border of jazz and classical” Peter de Backer, Jazzmozaïek, October 2011

' The music generally is very enjoyable, and displays an inner spirit not needing a drummer, while Fraanje and Goudsmit are accompanists who not only understand their roles, but take great liberties in asserting their ideas within a mezzo piano dynamic.' - Michael G. Bastos.

Jazz fusion is alive and kicking in the person of Dutch trumpeter Eric Vloeimans. Micheal J. West - Washington Citypaper - Maart 2010

Vloeimans, an award-winning trumpeter. Desmoinerregister - feb 2010.

Vloeiman's horn is big, warm and soft-edged -- the very sound of breath and yearning. Peter Hum - Ottawa Citizen - maart 2010

The Fugimundi Trio is almost unique in its lineup of trumpet, electric guitar, and piano. Vloeimans's idea was to create a new kind of contemporary chamber ensemble. Alexander Varty - Straight - maart 2010

The music ranged from soft and elegant to loud and boisterous; no shortage of European classicism combining with unmistakable tinges of blues and gospel. Unhindered by a rhythm section to create a defined pulse, Fugimundi swung hard at times, played with folkloric simplicity at others, and took advantage of their contextual freedom at every moment throughout a set that grabbed the audience from the first notes, and kept it on the edge of its seat until the very end, following a well-deserved encore. John R. Fouler - All about Jazz - maart 2010

“Antons face wreched in the curves of the music, he meandered with Estafest through the exciting compositions, with Fugimundi him and trumpet player Eric Vloeimans showed the public every corner of the Bimhuis. And with the Ploctones, the band that he will do a VPRO tour through the Netherlands, Goudsmit showed how rightly he diserved this award.” Tom Beetz - Jazzism june 2010

The VPRO / Boy Edgar 2010 was awarded to guitarist, composer and bandleader Anton Goudsmit. The prize will be awarded Monday, April 26, 2010 during a festive program at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam. JazzMozaiek - March / April / May 2010

He is versatile and moves between pop, jazz, chamber jazz, improvised music and grooving funk, says the jury when they give The Boy Edgar Award 2010, to Anton Goudsmit. Remco Takken - Jazz Bulletin - April 2010

In the musical manifesto that 050 has become, we hear that the foursome not only prides itself on a punk attitude with strong anarchist tendencies, but also a flirtation with the artistic side of the jazz . Goudsmit write almost all pieces. Ruud Meijer - Lust for life - June 2010

“Antons face wreched in the curves of the music, he meandered with Estafest through the exciting compositions, with Fugimundi him and trumpet player Eric Vloeimans showed the public every corner of the Bimhuis. And with the Ploctones, the band that he will do a VPRO tour through the Netherlands, Goudsmit showed how rightly he diserved this award.” Tom Beetz - Jazzism june 2010

“He is interested in the 'band feeling' 'it should crackle and simmer' in the music. The nicest thing are 'punkyrockyelectrojazz-y''. VPRO nieuwsbrief Augustus 2010

''If we go somewhere, we decide that night what to play. That depends on the atmosphere, the audience and the evening - The Ploctones.'' Nico Slagter LiveXS october 2010
