Amersfoort World Jazz Festival

When Montis, Goudsmit & Directie take the stage, you’ll know they’ll set the house on fire. Their shared love of funky souljazz brings three stage animals together in a sizzling liveshow. The energetic guitarist and Boy Edgar Prize winner Anton Goudsmit, the fiery drummer Cyriel Directie and groove machine Frank Montis on Hammond produce a killer live set that will dance from classics by Grant Green, Eddy Harris and The Meters to their own compositions and wild improv.

The three men met at a jam session in Amsterdam, where they discovered their stage chemistry was undeniable. With experience ranging from Gare du Nord and Ploctones to Candy Dulfer and Kane they single-handedly sold out their album presentation in Paradiso in 2019 and toured around pretty much every stage under the Dutch sun.
