Gilllespie Concerts: Andrew Moreno Trio Ft. Tineke Postma

Dec 2022

A musical encounter between the internationally acclaimed saxophonist Tineke Postma and the trio of the Spanish-Rotterdam star guitarist Andrew Moreno! This can only lead to fireworks. Do not miss it!
Heerenveen-born saxophonist Tineke Postma won the Boy Edgar Prize in 2015 as one of the few women in the history of the most important Dutch jazz prize. For her albums, such as The Traveler (2009) and Sonic Halo (2014 – with Greg Osby), she moves between America and Europe. On her latest album Freya (2020) she connects the personal theme motherhood to the fertility mythology of the Norse goddess Freya, which is expressed in both lyrical and abstract (improvisational) play.
The Andrew Moreno Trio was formed in 2021 by Spanish guitarist Andrew Moreno. He also connects lyricism to abstraction and jazz to rock, sometimes with raging clusters that are reminiscent of John McLaughlin and John Scofield. Moreno’s vision of a trio goes beyond a traditional jazz guitar trio and continuously searches for adventure and new angles as a group. This way the group not only takes Tineke Postma, but also the audience on an adventurous musical journey.
