Sh**t Music

Jazz and Classical: Nemesis or more of the same?

Sh**t Music is the title of the collaboration between Jazz Pianist/Arranger Rob Horsting and Classical Saxophonist Niels Bijl. The title refers to what happens to a jazz pianist when you suddenly put sheet music in front of him: sheer panic! oddly enough the exact same thing happens to a classical musician when you suddenly take the same sheet music away from him...

A programme in which the boundaries between jazz and classical are explored with both previously composed music and improvisation. Music by Jacob TV and Kenny Kirkland, but definately also coming straight from the musicians themselves.
