With over 100 gigs, playing for many corporates, the most wonderful of weddings, and Dutch Parliament, JazzWerk is tried and tested.  Now, Royal audience is added this phenomenal list!

On the 4th of April JazzWerk got the honour to play at the NAF gala 2019, which was held in the Pieterskerk (church) in Leiden.
Amongst others, her Royal Highness Princess Margriet of the Netherlands joined the gala as well. It was a very special experience that we will remember for long.

Written in the sixties and eventually performed in many different versions by many different bands. With that, Watermelon Man is the best opportunity for JazzWerk to make something new out of it. The tune starts as a smooth blues, from which drums and upright bass support its feel and together with the saxophone extending the tune to an almost unstoppable train.

"The real groove in this track comes from the upright bass. The short notes are as equally important as the moments of silence between these notes."

"These are a few of my favourite things" that is what our drummer said when JazzWerk was recording My Favourite Things. The version of JazzWerk can be characterized as rather unique, since it deviates from the original order, but also on dynamics and melodies. 

"Our drummer got the chance to open the song, setting the tone right away. The tension builds, through the dark piano chords in combination with the pulsing rythm section..what happens next? Listen yourself!" 

- JazzWerk
My Favourite Things Rodgers and Hammerstein

JazzWerk is playing a song from Alicia Keys? Yes, you read it well! JazzWerk truly has a big variety of songs for you available. Get surprised by jazz and soul sounds in our newest track called If I Ain't got you.

"This song is known for its soul sound and with that it is much different from all the other songs that we are playing. From my view it actually shows how much variety in songs we can offer to our clients."
