The O’Jay’s.

The O’Jays was exactly sixty years ago, founded by, among others, Eddie Delivers, and Walter Williams. Although under a different name, but you have to the two that after all these years, the North Sea to open as if they were already fifteen times previously did. This was only the first performance of the group in our country. With Williams, it was still a nice reunion Friday in the large Nile hall. At Delivers the best vocal on. Also waved their action and at times the pan out (especially during Livin’ for the weekend!), thus, The O’Jays the steaming soultrein was that the festival in motion drew.

Metropole Orchestra

In that other great hall of this three-day, Maas-such as the large, regular hall Ahoy is called during NSJ– enjoyed bassist Michael League of Snarky Puppy with the fullest of his performance with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra under the direction of conductor Jules Buckley. League, this year’s artist-in-residence at the three-day festival, and so new arrangements are devised, called the pop & jazz orchestra is a national treasure.” That the Metropole and Snarpy Puppy together previously played, and even a Grammy won for their joint album Sylva, created a well-oiled sequel of the Friday night.


Cameron Graves had just before also that the North Sea Jazz festival this year once again bet on the width. In sleeveless skull shirt and with a hair that many a hardrocker in the eighties green had seeing blind, had the classically trained pianist his fingers over the keys dance. Graves, who played on Kamasi washington’s rise peerless debut album, The epic, the treated a still fairly empty tent, which are totally original mix of classical, jazz, and metal.

First surprise

The first pleasant surprise had fortunately not long in coming. Twin sisters Lisa-Kiandé and Naomi Diaz came in the footsteps of their father, who is on NSJ played with Buena Vista Social Club. In the new Darling hall (on the place where previously the Amazon was) they brought an expressive mix of electronics, Cuban and other latin. Without a band, just with z ” n two on keys and percussion. No hitgevoeligheid here, but serious musical onderbuikgevoelens about each other, life and the position of the woman in a Donald Trump-led society. The man of the well-known ‘grab ‘em by the pussy ” statement brought the Diaz sisters in memory, to which their response stated was in the song No man’s big enough for my arms.
