Duo Up Close

In this intimate, chamber music-like setting Ed and Paul arrive at a contrast with their other projects. This jazz-duo is inspired by many styles, including Folk, Brazilian, Classical and Pop music. Both Ed and Paul are well known for their melodic and sensitive playing. And melody plays a leading role in their sound, but not without it’s counterparts. The music develops organically, always in search of a surprise.

The Professionalz

A new initiative from drummer Lucas v Merwijk, Organplayer Arno Krijger and myself. A challenging project with a mix of all styles absorbed by this great sounding trio.

This trio takes a 3 min principle for each tune we play. As a reference to the early recording days. The 78 RPM records would only allow the musicians a maximum of 3,5 minute. We thought it would be a challenge and an adventure to see how things would work out using this time and technical limitation in today’s jazz recording process. To try to tell a well rounded, to the point, musical story in a limited amount of time. A little miniature if you like.

Izaline Calister/ Ed Verhoeff, featuring Angelo Verploegen

For then 10 years now Ed and Izaline have been playing together. In the Izaline Calister band, in special projects and as a duo. In 2015 they decided to treat the duo more seriously as an ongoing feeling  of having a musical ‘clic’ together and the challenge to perform, like some famous singers before them, in this fragile but o so versatile setting. To see the two, who know each other so well and enjoy playing together so much, perform is a treat for the ear and eye.

In an extended version this duo gladly invites the great warm sound of trumpet player Angelo Verploegen.

Ed Verhoeff Band

This band consists of his former bandmembers Jeroen Vierdag and Hans van Oosterhout. Added Berthil Busstra on Fender-Rhodes and keyboards.

The sound of the Rhodes blending in perfectly with Ed’s guitarsound.

Melodic warm sounding music with its roots in the jazz-tradition.

Groovy, poppy tunes alternated with utterly subtle and sensitive works of art.
