The first concerts of 2016 have started.
This weekend the Criss Cross band was at stage in Tilburg at the Paradox and at Opdersmeltz in Luxembourg. Some quotes:
“In all contemporary compositions the intense polyphony was the baseline for adventurous soloing. De searching for musically challenging pieces runs along many different paths. You could hear free or modern-classical pieces, with lots of unexpected turns, kindly contoured by a soft ballad, ending in a romantic folksong.” (Dutch online magazine Draai om je oren

In opderschmeltz the venue was almost fully booked and people were very enthousiastic about the band. About Sclavis: “one of the most consistently satisfying, yet surprising jazz-driven composer-players in Europe.”
