Sounds of the Dutch Underground op NYC Winter Jazz Fest 2020!

Tineke Postma, Tin Men and the Telephone, Niels Broos & Jamie Peet en Binkbeats staan komende zondag in de Nublu Club in New York

Tineke Postma, Tin Men and the Telephone, Niels Broos & Jamie Peet en Binkbeats gaan dit weekend op avontuur in New York. Daar spelen ze op de speciale Sound of the Dutch Underground-avond op Winter Jazz Fest 2020.

Wij zijn hier in Nederland natuurlijk al lang op de hoogte van onze levendige jazzscene en de vele verschillende sounds die er zijn. Maar dit weekend gaat ook New York kennismaken met een aantal Nederlandse namen. De eveneens Nederlandse club muziekliefhebbers bij Good Music Company wist het New Yorkse Winter Jazz Fest te verleiden tot het samenstellen van een avond vol Nederlandse jazzartiesten onder de naam Sound of the Dutch Underground.

Andrew Makkinga gaat namens NPO Soul & Jazz op bezoek bij het festival, waar hij de Nederlandse acts zal presenteren. Ook maken we er een aantal mini-documentaires van deze Nederlandse invasie in New York. Daarover binnenkort meer!


“Winter Jazzfest illustrates just why the City is aptly known as the Jazz capital of the world.”


Een stukje geschiedenis...
Sinds de oprichting van het festival in 2005 heeft Winter Jazzfest in New York een stevige reputatie opgebouwd. Een broeinest voor culturele ontdekkingen, waar nieuwe en opwindende acts zich presenteren.

New York Times, de NPR en vele anderen zijn bijzonder enthousiast over het festival, dat nog altijd flink blijft groeien. De eerste editie vond op één dag en één locatie plaats, en groeide in 2017 uit naar zes dagen, veertien podia verdeeld over heel Downtown Manhattan met meer dan 150 acts. Ook buiten New York wint het festival steeds meer liefhebbers voor zich. In 2018 verwelkomden ze ruim 13.000 bezoekers.

Winter Jazzfest celebrates the music as a living entity, wherein history collides with the future in every note.  Creative improvisation in the digital age continues to stimulate thought and emotion of its listeners, embracing innovation, defying instrumental boundaries and the old cliches of “What is Jazz?”

Winter Jazzfest is the annual New York home to the exciting and forward-thinking contemporary jazz music being made today.  It attacts a unique, deeply engaged, discerning audience, a diverse range of cultural enthusiasts and music fans from across North America and over 20 countries.  The festival also plays host to attendees of the annual Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP), who attend Winter Jazzfest in order to discover new talents.

Tineke Postma Freya
Saxophonist, composer and Rising Star - Soprano Saxophone (Downbeat Polls 2019) Tineke Postma toured and recorded as a band leader and featured artist with artists such as Terri Lyne Carrington, Herbie Hancock, Kenny Barron, Geri Allen, Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves and Wayne Shorter. Tineke lived and studied in NYC between 2001-2013 and is currently based in the Netherlands. Tineke released six albums as a leader which received great critical acclaim and she is part of Grammy-winning albums by Terri Lyne Carrington (Mosaic Project) and Dianne Reeves (Beautiful Life). On March 20, 2020, Tineke's seventh album Freya (Edition Records) will be released. It features prominent New York City musicians Ralph Alessi, Dan Weiss, Matt Brewer and Kris Davis. Tineke’s music has been called "edgy and hip, dark and devious, grooving and untethered all at once" (All About Jazz). Downbeat called her "personal on all fronts" and Greg Osby quoted "Tineke’s voice is all hers."

Niels Broos & Jamie Peet
Niels Broos and Jamie Peet are two child prodigy musicians, hailing from The Netherlands. Niels started playing keys at the tender age of four, and Jamie started off behind the drumkit at 5. Both have their signature sound and style, which have forged them as two of the most influential musicians in The Netherlands today, when it comes to fusing contemporary styles like jazz, hiphop and electronics. They started performing together just recently, but within a couple of months have made quite an impression across bigger festivals like Transition Festival and Mondriaan Jazz Festival 2017, that brought these two together on stage for the first time. The music is totally improvised, with some melodic and rhythmic hooks, with an original analog approach, reminiscent of the New York based duo of Taylor McFerrin and Marcus Gilmore. But Niels and Jamie are less urban and build endless amounts of tension, that reminds the listener of groups like Aphex Twin, Squarepusher and early Autechre. This is the sound of the Dutch underground, the sound of today.

​Frank Wienk spent a good chunk of his lifetime studying the relationship between object and sound. Predominantly, his well-honed and peerless prowess of virtually any type of drum or percussion instrument served the artistic vision of others. As Binkbeats, Wienk snowballs his wide-eyed relationship to sound into a fully-formed, highly personal brainchild. Binkbeats previously made his mark with the Beats Unraveled series, which found him translating such paragons as Flying Lotus, Aphex Twin and J. Dilla to acoustic, tangible realms. And impressively enough, Beats Unraveled achieved this feat without sacrificing the amorphous nature of the respective original works. Utilizing a vast collection of instruments – ranging from vibraphone, guzheng (Chinese harp) and yes, even typewriters – Wienk rapidly gained an impromptu following. To him however, Beats Unraveled marked an exploratory phase of how to recreate certain sounds with his own instruments and gear. Now composing his original material, Wienk began stretching his sonic purview beyond just his vast array of percussion, and completely disregarding any parameters.
