It all started with a vision of sorts. A vision in which Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix made a record together. In late October 2018, the double album Elektra was released, starring trumpeter Michael Varekamp and master guitarist Jerome Hol. Jazz critic Tom Beetz called Elektra "By far the best CD of the year," and went on to write a jubilant review. 'I doubt 'Miles and Jimi would have made a better record.'
That was 2018, time to expand on the success of that first CD and push even more to the edges of our musical and creative spectrum. Shrouded, menacing rhythms that suddenly morph into hushed soundscapes. Virtuoso guitar solos, the trumpet playing a lyrical duet with the keys that suddenly transforms into a wild punk jazz collective, stomping grooves that never become predictable.More Elektra!
Especially for this occasion, the new CD More Elektra is included in the ticket!
