Anna Tsombanis & Paul Van de Calseijde Quartet
Spontaneous, confronting, but intimate jazz music. A.P.Q. combines the familiarity of a jazz quartet with the freedom of playing without a harmony instrument. Two tenor players exploring the paradox of beauty and sadness within seemingly simple tunes.
Anna Tsombanis (DE) and Paul Van de Calseijde (NL) met each other last year (2019) during a summer tour in England with the the three national youth orchestra’s from the Netherlands (NJJO), Germany (BuJazzO) and England (NYJO). Playing in a bigband section together for a full week, Anna and Paul found such a nice musical connection in each others playing that they decided to team up for a little quartet tour in the Netherlands. This tour resulted in a spontaneous recording session that became this EP.
The fact that this whole project was unplanned creates music that is both fresh and raw. Walking in the footsteps of their jazz heroes they traditionally recorded with only a few mics, everything in one room and with only two takes of every song. An unforced recording session that allowed the whole band to freely interpret the core of every song.
