MARK MURPHY & TRIO ROB VAN BAVEL
Mark Murphy-vocals, Rob van Bavel-piano, Clemens van der Feen-bass, Chris Strik-drums
With his apparently casual but brilliant improvisations, singer Mark Murphy keeps surprising new generations of listeners. Since his 1956 debut recording he has received six Grammy nominations and many times topped the Downbeat Readers’ Poll in the category Best Male Vocalist of the Year. Ella Fitzgerald called Murphy her ‘equal.’ He created new lyrics for instrumental melodies by legends such as Charlie Parker, Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins. Pianist Rob van Bavel’s trio will accompany Murphy.
