  • Tobias Klein (alto sax, (contra-) bass clarinet), bassist Gonçalo Almeida and drummer Martin van Duynhoven will play the season opening concert at the Bimhuis (Amsterdam) this coming Thursday. The concert will also be recorded for their 2nd CD. ...

    The careers of these musicians encompass a dazzling variation of musical directions, from South Indian music to metal and even opera. Consequently, their acoustic trio is inspired by adventurous music in the broadest sense. Alto sax and bass clarinet player Tobias Klein is a member of the electric avant-jazz/metal band Spinifex alongside bass player Gonçalo Almeida. Drummer Martin van Duynhoven is a household name in Dutch jazz since the 1960s. Tobias Klein composed the lion’s share of their album Vibrate in Sympathy, including tributes to his great examples on alto sax, Henry Threadgill, Ornette Coleman and Oliver Lake. ‘Klein’s simple, heartfelt and honest alto, Almeida singing on bass and Duynhoven’s little breaks using the brushes… the trio plays honest and forthright improvised music to which I will gladly listen to in the future’ (Salt Peanuts, Norway). ______________________________________________________ 7 September - Almeida/Duynhoven/Klein Tickets: €16,- updated their cover photo. ...

    Yesterday Basklarinet NL @ Uitmarkt Amsterdam:
    Duo Büyükberber-Klein with impro, duo Schouten-Althuis with "Schlaf" by Poppe and an impro in quartet. At both locations Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ & Conservatorium van Amsterdam we had a full house with very mixed nice audience - adults and quite some kids!
