Album Description

PEOPLE FLOW - ERIK VERWEY TRIO After graduating from the conservatories of Utrecht (bachelor) and The Hague (master), pianist Erik Verwey (1987) worked for many years as a composer and accompanist of various successful theater and cabaret programs (a.o., Louise Korthals, Ronald Snijders, Dolf Jansen). These theater tours have given him a lot of composing experience. In addition to his musical activities in the theatre world, Erik had a great urge, or rather a musical necessity, to write and play his own music. The wish was: to write his own pieces with his favorite musicians, in the tradition of the jazz piano trio. People Flow is a musical translation of how Erik is inspired by his encounters with people. Erik took these encounters to his house on the river Amstel. On People Flow people and places are translated into music and that has resulted in this special debut album in which each piece forms a portrait in his story. He has recorded spatial music on an accessible and from beginning to end dynamic sounding debut album. Cinematic improvisations are a leading part of the music, with roots in jazz and space for all three members of the trio. With drummer Daniel van Dalen, also known from Fuse (house band of national TV show Podium Witteman) Erik has been playing in different formations for over 12 years but he is indispensable for this trio. Hendrik Mūller, completes the trio on the double bass in recent years. Guest contributions from top musicians Bart Wirtz (flugelhorn) and Teus Nobel (saxophone) can also be heard for a few songs. Last year the trio played at various venues, culminating in the Bali Jazz Festival. You can watch a registration of this show on YouTube (with substitute drummer Joan Terol Amigo).

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
