STS Digital Art and Spirit of Music Vol. 3. 'Dutch Jazz Legends' (STS6111137)

The Art and Spirit of Music, Vol. 3. 'Dutch Jazz Legends'

Reviewed by Ken Kesler in Hi-Fi News and Record Review magazine and receiving a great 89/100, a very high musicality/music rating; this volume 3 of the Art and Spirit of Music series - 'Dutch Jazz Legends' offers you a selection of jazz classics, all served up with the STS engineering sound that makes for quality audiophile listening pleasure.

Historically the Dutch jazz scene has always been very vivid and inspiring; such legends as the Dutch Swing College Band, Pia Beck an Rita Reys were able to emerge from the Dutch Jazz scene. These legends formed the base for a whole new generation of brilliant musicians who worked their way onto world stage, to the ranks of internationally acclaimed jazz musicians.

'Dutch Jazz Legends' is a new chapter in Dutch jazz history. Directed by Ben van den Dungen (Woody Shaw, Mal Waldron) and Michael Varekamp (Dutch Swing College Band, Scott Hamilton) this new generation is ready to touch your heart and ears with their renditions in the unique and timeless jazz art form. With reference to the glory days of jazz, this first album of 'Dutch Jazz Legends' is soulful, touching and irresistible - swinging it's way through the third CD of the series 'Celebrating the art & spirit of music'. Enjoy.
