Bart Wirtz Short Info

"After winning an Edison (dutch Grammy) for his album iDreamer (with Nicolas Payton, Kendrick Scott, Xavier Davis and Richie Goods), the new album 'interview' was released in May 2014. For this recording, the line up is expanded with vibraphone, bass clarinet and keys. A new, fresh and surprising sound, cross-over with different styles that makes connection with the current time with rock, roots and jazz influences. At the same time a magic cooperation with one of the world’s greatest trumpet players Sean Jones (the orchestra of Wynton Marsalis, the Marcus Miller band)."

Volkskrant about 'Interview':
"Melodic strong, musically diverse and accessible, interview is an album that you'll play a lot".
