Masha Bijlsma Sextet
In 2003 I recorded the CD ‘Lopin’ featuring trumpet players
Jarmo Hoogendijk and Ruud Breuls, tenorsaxophonist Bob Malach and
trombonist Bart van Lier. The cooperation with these great gentleman
was so fruitful that I decided to give it a continuation: I started the
Masha Bijlsma Sextet featuring hornmen Tony Lakatos and Bart van Lier,
who, besides their great solo and ensemble contributions, both provided that fat
sound for this ‘sextetto’ .
Arrangements for the band came from
pianist Rob van den Broeck and bass player Henk de Ligt.
This is a great band for festivals!
