I always wanted to record an album with some of my favorite pop, jazz and fusion songs.
Recorded in the summer of 2021
When I ended up having more time than I usually do in the summer of 2021, I rented a space and got to work. I first recorded all bass guitar and drum parts together with bassist Nico Staal, and by the end of the summer holidays I had also recorded all marimba and vibraphone parts.
Mixed and mastered in 2022
Of course I wanted to mix and master everything as quickly as possible, but that always takes more time than you think. When the world ended up opening up a bit more at the beginning of 2022, some regular jobs immediately came my way again, which put this project under pressure.
Released in 2023
But now at the beginning of 2023 I can proudly say that my first solo album is finally available!
Available as CD & MP3 downloads
Because I like having something tangible, I decided to release the album:
✅ On a compact disc
✅ As a download
When you purchase the album you will receive the CD with an insert with the QR code/download link with which you can download the complete album in MP3 format.
Old school, but also up to date 😁
Recommend to others
Make sure you keep the insert in a safe place and do not share it with others. If you do, it will be impossible for me to recoup the costs incurred for this album. Of course I would love it if you recommend my album to others too!
I hope you like the music (you can listen to a sample of each song below) and thank you for purchasing!
As you can see in the below video I have already arranged one of these songs to perform with concert band. I think it would be great fun to be able to perform this song, or one of the other songs, with your band or percussion ensemble. We could also combine that with a workshop for your middle school or high school percussionists. If that sounds like fun to you, please contact me.
