Tineke Postma Four ft. Ralph Alessi – Freya
Wed 13 May 2020 - 19:15 Thu 14 May 2020 - 19:15
Sax player and composer Tineke Postma as a bandleader has been touring since 2003 internationally. She was awarded many awards, as such the Buma Boy Edgar Price (2015) and she worked as guest player with prominent musicians like Esperanza Spalding, Dianne Reeves, Wayne Shorter, Richard Bona and Herbie Hancock.
This spring she releases her new album Freya, her most personal project until now. Freya is the Nordic goddess of fertility, love and lust. She is also part of the Frisian mythology where Tineke was born: the Frisians are Freya’s children. With this album Tineke pays tribute to motherhood, her youth in Friesland and powerful women.
This evening the saxophone player is on stage with one of the musicians of her new album: the most leading trumpetplayer Ralph Alessi. Alessi is ‘an individualist with a style and sound all his own’, according to Downbeat. With his characteristic clear sound and admirable craftsmanship he is a much needed sideman of sounding names like Jason Moran, Ravi Coltrane, Fred Hersch, Uri Caine and Marc Copland. On his nine albums, of which three of them at ECM Records, he weaves skillfully the influences of post-bop to neoclassical music. Bassist Clemens van der Feen and drummer Tristan Renfrow complete the quartet.
