Saxophonist Joris Roelofs is a lucky man: he was able to record his debut album with Material Records, the new label of top Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel. And this is nothing less than a quality guarantee. Those of you who are familiar with Roelofs' recent history will have no reason to doubt that he is the coming man on the sax and clarinet in the Netherlands. In 2004 Roelofs won the prestigious Deloitte Jazz Award, since 2005 he has been a member of the famous Vienna Art Orchestra and he has performed regularly in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. This year, Roelofs is nominated for the Paul Acket Award. He performs with three of the most talented young musicians around: pianist Aaron Goldberg, bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland. The quartet made up of Roelofs, Goldberg, Penman, Harland plays a type of post-bop that, although firmly anchored in traditional jazz, is always looking towards the ever-unpredictable future.
