Udo Pannekeet

Bass player Udo Pannekeet graduated from the Conservatory of Amsterdam. During his education he was part of the trio Isotope. In 2002 he started his own quintet Pitch Pine Project, featuring Martijn van Iterson, Tom Beek, Chris Strik en Rob van Bavel. The group got a lot of critical acclaim in the Netherlands as well as outside of it. Pitch Pine Project played at the North Sea Jazz Fetival twice, and in 2008 even performed with famous trumpet player Randy Brecker as a guest soloist. Afterwards Udo became a member of the Tim Langedijk Trio, featuring Hans van Oosterhout on the drums. He has been with them for over eight years now and they’ve released four CD’s, pianist Jasper van t’ Hof collaborating on the CD “November.” In 2014 'On' was released, a quartet record with Udo's own compositions. Currently Udo is the bassplayer for the legendary dutch band FOCUS since 2016. As a mixing engineer/producer Udo did the mix for Till Bronner's record 'The Good Life”. In 2019 his latest solo-record 'Electric Regions' was released.

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!
