NEW PROJECTS

Released in March 2018, ‘Nebula’ is a full album dedicated to the vivid dream Tuur had about the universe and his home town. Full of special and sentimental value for Tuur, the album features Portuguese accordionist João Frade, Brazilian Munir Hossn on bass and acoustic guitar, Belgian Thomas Maasz on the grand piano and Spanish Jorge Pardo, a special guest on the flutes.

STYLE & SCENE

Most praised for his unique style and unerring consistency as a drummer, Tuur has developed a highly diversified artistic palette ranging from jazz and latin to African and Brazilian music. He mesmerizes audiences, performing in a deeply charged pace that begets soulful perfection. His love for travel complemented with opportunities to perform live in various countries continue to expose him to differing styles and rhythms which had initially lead to the development of his signature style and is part of the reason why the powerful, innovative and creative core of his music speaks perfectly to the demands of the new collective music.

Tuur has played or continues to play with Lura, Munir Hossn, Paulinho Lêmos, Jorge Pardo, Hélio Batalha, Blick Bassy, Yonathan Avishai, Adriano Dd, Nelson Faria, Rick Margitza, Dave Valentine, Randy Brecker, Don Braden, Pepe Romero, Izaline Calister, Ntjam Rosie, Jesse van Ruller, Benjamin Herman, Teus Nobel, Rogier Telderman, Ben van den Dungen, Neco Novellas, Jeroen Vierdag, Joris Teepe amongst others.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
