No nachtconcerten, no verrassingsoptredens of Prince, or stars of the caliber of Stevie Wonder this year at the North Sea Jazz festival. The doors of the Ahoy swing this afternoon open for the 43rd edition and it promises to advance a adventurous.
That begins already today, with a program that without more varied. If only for the live hip-hop from The Roots (with friends) as a large valve in the Nile, the soulpop of Emeli Sandé in the support and the sweet, glijerige R&B of Maxwell as a dessert in the Maas.
With thirteen venues plus an outdoor terrace where quizzes, clinics, and a new, daily talk show take place, is full the program, of course, especially of the names. A lot of real jazz, today, inter alia, the quirky singer Kurt Elling and his quintet, and meestertrompettist Roy Hargrove with a quartet in the chic lobby Amazon. Marcus Miller performs with his fusionfunk in the large Guard-room, while in the Meuse already at 17.30 hours the jongehonderige Snarky Puppy stage goes on with our own Metropole Orchestra. His bassist Michael League, this year is the so-called Artist in Residence and will all the days action.
Lovers of the slightly less jazzy music in addition to the previously mentioned trio go at bluesgitarist and singer Gary Clark jr. is Also a nice place reserved for The O’Jays, the soulgroep already a half-century of changes and even stadiums filled, but only now makes his debut in our country.
The last strong jazz related music that a permanent place has earned at North Sea Jazz is what is on lot of world music. As the Turkish-Dutch Altin Gün, funky psychedelica with a good dose of traditional Turkish influences and instruments. Heupwiegers start the best for Ibeyi in the Darling, or the twin sisters Lisa-Kiande and Naomi Diaz, Afro-Cuban rhythms to electronics translated. The dessert for those who want to dance, the New York salsakoning Willie Colón in the Hudson, a guaranteed party.
