Ellister van der Molen Quartet Short Info

The four musicians of the Ellister van der Molen Quartet share an undogmatic passion for bebop and deriving styles. The compositions of both Jeremy Manasia and Ellister van der Molen voice personal memories and experiences, and manoeuvre between tradition, trend and timelessness.
Their CD “Smalls NYC” named after the famous club in New York, was very well received by both press and audience, opening the way to bigger stages such as the North Sea Jazz Festival in 2014.

“...As a composer and as a bandleader, she seems to be unassuming as well, as if she wants to tell us ‘It’s not about me, it’s about the music’. And yet, she is all of the place. Every note on an Ellister-session is an Ellister note. There should be more recordings like this...” Jeroen de Valk
