Adventurous music and things

Oorstof newsletter

1/3 Amado – McPhee – Corsano – Kessler + Di Domenico – Almeida – Pándi at De Singer

Here at the Oorstof HQ we always are excited about the next event and we always try to convince people it’s more than worth it to come down for the shows. And then there’s the Oorstof events where we do not need to convince anyone that missing out is missing out on something exceptional indeed. This is certainly the case for the double bill that’s on this Wednesday March 1st for which we team up with the good people of De Singer at Rijkevorsel. Stellar, yes sir, that’s the least we can say of the artists that are lined up.

This Is Our Language, a reference to Ornette Coleman’s classic album This Is Our Music, is the name by which Rodrigo Amado and his brothers in music Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano and Kent Kessler since 2015 fuse past and future into an ultimate free jazz trip. Giovanni Di Domenico, Gonçalo Almeida and Balázs Pándi in their turn use Cement Shoes as a moniker, a perfect way to describe how they will nail you to the floor while further crossing and exploring the sonic borders and possibilities of improvised music.
