THIJS VAN LEER GROUP FEAT. EEF ALBERS & PIERRE VAN DER LINDEN
Sat 6 May 2017 - 20:30
Hammond organ and flute player Thijs van Leer with his band Focus has established his reputation worldwide. Together with the guitarist Jan Akkerman they were the face of the band booking together plenty of national and international successes.
Drummer Pierre van der Linden also belonged to this legendary group. But what a lot of people don’t know is that the guitarist Eef Albers has been playing with the band as well. He (together with guitar player Philip Catherine) became a successor of Jan Akkerman when the last left Focus. Eef Albers is considered by many as a leading guitarist and one of the most prominent Dutch musicians.
The Quintet completes with the guitarist Thomas Zoetelief and bass player Koos Wiltenburg. One immediately realizes reading the CVs of the last two gentlemen that their roots are lying in the jazz and this is exactly what they are going to prove in the Paard tonight. Of course, there will be some familiar songs of Focus passing by. We don’t really mind that…
