06-07-2011 // sch: [North Sea Jazz 2011] Friday Preview

Every year the 2nd weekend of July Rotterdam hosts the biggest indoor Jazz festival of the world, the fabulous North Sea Jazz Festival. And if i'm not mistaken this is gonna be my 6th year of being present for the whole 3 days. Just like with other music festivals the fun is not only in the 3 days of getting soaked with fantastic music, a great atmosphere and the occasional drink, but also in looking forward to these things. Usually i start a few weeks before the big weekend spending hours & hours listening to just about every artist that is visiting the festival. Due to the unforseen situation that has controlled my life over the past 2 weeks and is still very present, i haven't had any time for this, but i'm determined to prepare myself as good as i can. And so i set my alarmclock early this morning and i have spend the morning checking out the Friday Schedule, marking the things i just might find myself listening to this weekend.
Check out my personal Friday tips right now, right here:

Volga - 17.45: John Law Art Of Sound Trio:


Darling - 18.00: Brandt Brauer Frick


Mississippi - 19.45: Dulfer 7.0 Server incl. Rob Van De Wouw
Last year this concert was cancelled after 20 minutes during the pouring rain, but it was 1 of the best shows i've ever seen @ North Sea Jazz. Hope this year will be as good and will make the full 75 minutes.

Darling - 21.45: Kneebody


Yenisei - 21.30: Liam Sillery Quintet


Madeira - 22.00: Michel Portal with Ambrose Akinmusire


Yenisei - 23.15: Eric Dolphy At The Five Spot Revisited
