Dutch venues 3


On 6 February 2009 Tineke Postma was announced.

And what proves to be. She was there with a very sparkling line up. Drummer Joost van Schaik, bass player Clemens van  der Feen and pianist Harmen Fraanje were her partners this evening and that would guarantee surprise.


Fraanje in a complete different idiom as usual  and van Schaik found each other in  harmonic and rhythmic antics. And van Feen continued providing these adventurous guys a solid base.


Tineke just arrived back from  New York, where she recorded a new CD with star drummer  Terri Lyne Carrington. But the way she played this night did not show any trace of a possible Jetlag.

She played like hell and made us listen to some of her new compositions, just recorded.
