Rogier Telderman distinguishes himself as a pianist and composer by his ability to connect with his audience and his investigative approach towards music. As a bandleader of a variety of different ensembles, he embraces the combination between composition and improvisation. He has already been proclaimed one of Hollands most promising jazzartist (2010).
With his modern pianotrio - the RT3 with Guus Bakker on double bass and Belgian drummer Tuur Moens - he explores intuitive interaction within the boundaries of their compositions, whereas the elements adventurous, organic and lyrical remain constant. This Fall they will record their debut album, as well as work on an interpretation of Moessorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Together with vibist Vincent Houdijk, he forms the remarkable piano and vibraphone-duo Houdijk-Telderman, for which they both compose music which investigates the different possibilities in sounds for these instruments. Houdijk-Telderman will record their first album this Summer. With the smooth blend of jazz and soul of his band MELPHI, they won the DuvelVibes Challenge (2012) and got tracks released on the legendary Blue Note Records label. In April he will present their debutalbum “Through The Looking Glass” with the label SnipRecords. ...
