Rein Godefroy Rein Godefroy

Rein Godefroy (Breda, 1982) was raised in a family filled with classical musicians. It was no surprise that he started to play the piano when he was four.

After four years of playing and studying classical piano, Rein got more interested in the jazz genre. After two years of intensive jazz piano lessons with pianist John Reyna, he was accepted at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. There he studied with pianists Rob van Bavel and Juraj Stanik. In 2006 he received his masters degree and graduated with distinction.

Since his graduation Rein played with numerous exiting but very diffent groups like Fullduplexx and the Paul van Kemenade Quintet and he recorded several albums which al got fantastic reviews.

Inspirited by those groups and recordings Rein decided to form his own trio in 2016. He asked two amazing musicians (Pim Dros and Guus Bakker) to join him and they recorded the first album It Will Come in 2016.

This album Is not about showcasing their individual technical skills, but is a collection of song which all have their own storyline.

The album It Will Come is scheduled for release in march 10, 2017 on the label Safe Sound Records.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
