Musica Gymnastica

A 12 track free improvisation album (40m 40s) — released October 24th 2016 on 339 Records

Trombonist / composer Louk Boudesteijn (New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra, Fullduplexx, Paul van Kemenade, Paul Weller, Special Request Horns, Metropole Orchestra) had the idea to do something with a small team consisting of only trombone, saxophone and guitar. With this in mind, he wrote new repertoire leaving room for pure improvisation.

Louk formed a trio with saxophonist Nils van haften (Dutch Jazz Orchestra, Clazz ensemble, Bob Brookmeyer's New Art Orchestra ) and guitar hero Anton Goudsmit (The Ploctones, New Cool Collective, Estafest) .

Anton and Louk had just done a tour with the New Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra, which was a huge inspiration to do more together.

Accompanied by the lyrical saxophone giant Nils, the men bend in all possible directions to squeeze out their ideas, often with a humorous touch.

In short: MUSICA Gymnastica!
