Ben Van Gelder and Reinier Baas (Holland) Album Launch ’SMASH HITS’

Guitarist Reinier Baas and saxophonist Ben van Gelder shared the stage over 200 times in the past years, but continue to challenge each other as performers and composers. They have developed a unique vocabulary that is rooted in the American jazz tradition, but is unmistakably European at the same time.

Baas’ spirited approach to the guitar is contagious, drawing the listener in with unexpected rhythmical and dynamic turns. Critics and peers alike praise him for his diversity in texture and idiosyncratic harmonic inventions.

Van Gelder is regarded internationally as an authority on the alto saxophone. He displays a remarkable amount of tranquility and overview and alternates diaphanous lyricism with explosive virtuosity.

SMASH HITS, a registration of the duo’s collaboration with the multiple Grammy Award winning Metropole Orkest, was released on Basta Music in October 2018. A duo record is due for release in June 2019.
