Songs First - 10 "North Sea Round Town Special"
…..What to do, where to go and what to listen to..join us as we discuss the latest gigs in and around Rotterdam, the best records of the moment and maybe some musical history!
This Thursday will be all about Jazz, North Sea Jazz to be precise. With North Sea Jazz coming up in 2 weeks and the amazing fringe festival North Sea Round Town coming at us with some amazing, unexpected and original shows from local, national and international artists in and around town until then, it would be impossible not to do anything. So for this 2 hour special, we’ll be talking, playing and discussing all things Jazz. The show will be recorded from the lounge of Lantaren Venster, one of the epicentres of North Sea Round Town. To talk more jazz we have invited several key players like Michelle Wilderom, director of North Sea Round Town; Sam Uittenbogaart, one of the bookers of NSRT and initiator of Know The Ledge, a very special and interesting coop performance of musicians, MC’s, and producers. She will also bring some of these performers with her, to tell us all about Know the Ledge. Philip Powell, artistic director Bird - Rotterdam, organizer of NSJ’s Boogie Ball and all round jazzy guy; As well as Pauline Koning, classical Violinist and part of the Re:Freshed Orchestra who will be performing some of DR Dre’s greatest hits, during NSJ as well as NSRT, arranged by Grammy award-winning producer Sly5thAve.
