Jazz Concours

After a period in the Surinam band Fra Fra Sound, he started his own quintet, that was almost immediately awarded at the NOS/Meervaart Jazz-concours.

Armando Cairo continues: “For a long time I tried to combine painting and music, but because of the success of the band, I haven’t produced a lot of paintings lately. In a way that hurts, art is one of my great loves. But it is inevitable; once you’re successful in music, your can’t just leave it at that. Next year – for instance – I want to record an album, and that takes a lot of energy.

Coming Thursday the sextet will play, amongst some old repertoire, a great number of nrew and revised arrangements.

The formation furthermore consists of Jos Driessen (trumpet), Jeldrik Ijland (alt-saxophone), Joost Buis (trombone), Wilbert de Joode (double bass) and Matin van Duynhoven (drums).
