Concert tour 2016 started

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.”
