Scofield, Mehldau, Guiliana - NSJ 2016

Highlight in my opinion of the 2016 edition of the North Sea Jazz festival in Rotterdam was the Scofield Mehldau Guiliana trio. Man, this was really funky.Scofield Mehldau Guiliani

Mehldau played on Grand Piano, Fender Rhodes, Prophet 08 and Moog Little Phatty. When Scofield played his solo's, Mehldau played bass on the Moog, while Scofield played bass guitar (on a stand) while Mehldau was soloing. Guiliana played very strong and funky on drums as well as some electronic pads in between. A real highlight on the NSJ 2016. You can also get an idea of the concert right here:

About me

I like music, especially making music. I listen to a lot of different stuff, but I like soul, jazz and fusion music most. I like to develop and experiment with tools to make music performance and improvisation on the spot more exciting. It is fun when unexpected musical things happen during a performance!

In recent years I developed the MIDI real-time Harmonizer, a tool for generating harmonized chords when playing a solo line. Inspired by the work of saxophonist Michael Brecker, I started to develop this tool to run on Mac and PC. Brecker played the Electronic Wind Instrument and used the Oberheim Xpander synth to generate random chords from an EWI solo line. Now you can accomplish the same thing with the MIDI real-time Harmonizer driving your own favourite (plugin) synths.
