Fiona's Comments

Great facility to unravel angsty knots and plait them into fragments of potential calm.

About the Album

LAYERS is the second album of guitarist/composer Michiel Stekelenburg from The Netherlands. His debut album Hypnos was received with wide acclaim. As a result, the internationally renowned North Sea Jazz festival invited Michiel for their 2013 edition. His origins in rock music have influenced both his playing and his compositions. Critics consider his style as 'modern jazz, avant-garde, hot-blooded and sometimes brutal'. On the other hand, 'small, intense and melodical'. His new release LAYERS contains 11 new compositions performed by an 'all star' Dutch quintet, taking contemporary European jazz to an exciting level.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
