A great debut album of this young group, that knows its roots, not swayed by the issues of the day. The result is "Triplicate", a group dedicated to the roots of jazz music while constantly looking to the future.
The young Dutch group Triplicate released last month its debut album in Pavlov Bar and Restaurant in The Hague, entitled Three and one. The trio, featuring trumpet player Ellister Van Der Molen, pianist Bob Wijnen and double bass player Johnny Daly was enlarged with drummer and nestor of the Dutch jazzscene Eric Ineke. Its debut Three and one surprised - a great album made by young people, not swayed by the issues of the day, but striving to keep the jazz tradition and thre spirit of jazz alive, healthy and into the future! Quote (not to the letter): Claudio Roditi.
This is traditional jazz, performed with craftsmenship and enthusiasm. A combination of virtuosity and thoughtfulness, in which the band sound is the most important factor. - A very positive review by the Dutch musicians’ union NTB, in Dutch, to be found on the radio 6 site.
"A The Hague based group, which finds support from drummer Eric Ineke every now and then. Being in this metier for years, Ineke shares his gift not with just anybody. On this stick you'll hear why Triplicate gets his approval."
Triplicate is a tight, rock solid trio, which delivers wonderful goods with their second album Call of the Wild.
“Ellister plays marvellous. Long melodic lines, not always the most obvious notes, and with an almost velvety sound: veiled, but more out there when the music is asking for it” ... “Bob Wijnen, Johnny Daly and Eric Ineke are great accompanists and outstanding soloists”.
