Bob Wijnen

Bob Wijnen is a pianist of great sensitivity and depth. Much in demand as an accompanist, he is known for having some of the best ears around, as well as being an elegant and adventurous soloist who has absorbed a great deal of the history of jazz piano.

He has toured Indonesia (Java Jazz Festival), Michigan USA, and Iceland, and can be heard on CDs by Maygus (Double Moon Records), Sanna van Vliet – Insight (Munich Records), Klemens Marktl Quartet featuring Jasper Blom – The Challenge (Jazz’n’Arts), Triplicate featuring Eric Ineke and Equinox with Dutch jazz giants Sjoerd Dijkhuizen and Marcel Serierse....

”Watch out for him: he already was a tasteful pianist ever since, but he's getting better and better every time I hear him.” - Bert Jansma, The Hague jazz journalist

“The young Dutch group Triplicate released last month its debut album in Pavlov Bar and Restaurant in The Hague, entitled Three and one. The trio, featuring trumpet player Ellister Van Der Molen, pianist Bob Wijnen and double bass player Johnny Daly was enlarged with drummer and nestor of the Dutch jazzscene Eric Ineke. Its debut Three and one surprised - a great album made by young people, not swayed by the issues of the day, but striving to keep the jazz tradition and thre spirit of jazz alive, healthy and into the future! Quote (not to the letter): Claudio Roditi.” - Jazzcorner.com

“This is traditional jazz, performed with craftsmenship and enthusiasm. A combination of virtuosity and thoughtfulness, in which the band sound is the most important factor.” - A very positive review by the Dutch musicians’ union NTB about Triplicate's album Three and One
