Beets-Meutgeert New Jazz Orchestra is an inspired combination of established musicians and upcoming jazz talent. Composer and arranger Henk Meutgeert and pianist Peter Beets are at the helm, exploring a new theme through surprising interplay at every concert. Expect mesmerizing solos and, naturally, razor sharp swing. At Amersfoort World Jazz, George Gershwin’s famous compositions will take center stage, accompanied by a fine selection of soloists.
During our October events, the Orchestra will back some of our esteemed international guests, including Living Legend and bassist, composer and conductor John Clayton and the ineffable saxophonist Igor Butman. It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing!
