Normal Gets You Nowhere

Writing and studying a jazz solo as if it were composed by Beethoven. Thus is the approach of improvisations and jazz royalty by Ties Mellema, a saxofonist who is hard to categorise. How do notes sound when interpreted in a contemporary manner? Ties initiated this ambitious project with jazz pianist and composer Rembrandt Frerichs and together they bring the performances by John Coltrane and Lennie Tristano back to life. New music was been written by Theo Loevendie, Rembrandt Frerichs and others.

The series Meesterlijk! Will be even more celebratory this year. Winners of the GrachtenfestivalPrijs have been invited to put their own program together and invite their musical friends.
