Jazz with subtle classical influences by internationally renowned pianist Juraj Stanik, known for his close collaborations with Toon Roos and Ack van Rooyen.
Pianist Juraj Stanik played countless gigs with internationally established musicians. He collaborated intensively with Toon Roos and Ack van Rooyen and he has shared the stage with Benny Golson, Chris Potter, Pat Metheny and many others. He’s also a well-respected solo pianist. ‘Wow’, his third trio-CD, sounds fresh and open, influenced on the one hand by modern jazz heroes such as Herbie Hancock and Mulgrew Miller, and on the other hand by classical composers such as Chopin, Debussy and Bartók. The pianist will present his new album Inside Out (Challenge Records) at the BIMHUIS together with his well-respected partners, double bassist Frans van der Hoeven and drummer Roberto Pistolesi. Special guest is the young rising star saxophonist Gideon Tazelaar. ‘Pianist/composer Juraj Stanik excels in phrasing. He knows how to articulate, how to tell a story and how to take the listener on a journey’ (JazzFlits). (This concert has been rescheduled from 25 April)
