BAS VAN LIER TRIO
LIVE PAINTING BY PETER RIEZEBOS
PRESENTATION CD GROOVE OR DARE
Bas van Lier piano, Tobias Nijboer bas, Erik Kooger drums, Peter Riezebos live painting
Pianist Bas van Lier does not beat around the bush. Groove or Dare is the title of his new album full of ‘hi-energy jazz with a twist of soul and blues’: captivating, accessible jazz in his own style inspired by Monk, Medeski and Ramsey Lewis. The Bas van Lier 3 featuring bassist Tobias Nijboer and drummer Eric Kooger are accompanied on stage by live painter Peter Riezebos, who currently celebrates success in galleries in Shanghai and New York.
The Bas van Lier 3 is equally at ease playing the music of Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus as songs by Lykke Li, Bette Midler or Bobby Gentry; a repertory full of surprises. Bas van Lier has been the driving force behind many different bands including De Deeldeliers (featuring Dutch poet Jules Deelder) and Bl3nder (featuring rapper Def P). He was the main pianist in the band of famous saxophonist Hans Dulfer and he led the ‘Friday Night Live at Toomler’ comedy night. After several years of pursuing his second love, the Hammond organ, Bas van Lier has now back at the piano.
The Bimhuis restaurant is open prior to the concert from 6.30 till 8.30PM (reservations via 020-7882158). After the concert, the Bimhuis Café is open (free entrance).
