Vibist Carl Schulze is a veteran in the Dutch jazz landscape. It’s true that he hasn’t made many recordings as a leader, but during his career he did play in many orchestra’s and he accompanied many famous singers (Lee Towers) and theater personalities (Toon Hermans). As a member of the Louis van Dijk Quartet he won the prize for best soloist at the Loosdrecht Jazz Competition in 1961. A few years later he put together his own band. He composed and arranged music for ensembles and orchestras like the Skymasters and The Metropole Orchestra, played in various Latin jazz groups and was always on the road with several bands. As a studio musician he was much in demand and he also taught at various conservatories. Together with three eager, young musicians, he will present music from his album April Dance this year. The repertoire includes jazz, fusion and salsa inspired original compositions, but he will also improvise on compositions by Wayne Henderson, Mal Waldron en Jerome Richardson.
