Jazz and classical music sometimes seem to be on opposite sides ofthe musical spectrum. Little more than amiably greeting each otherfrom afar. Or is that a prejudice? Saxophonist Dick de Graaf andtrumpet player Gerard Kleijn believe just that. In their music,they seek the places where jazz and modern classical musicintersect. This all happens in the CLAZZ Ensemble, a 'small bigband' whose members come from both the jazz and classical musicscenes. The album Adventures has just been released. Dick de Graaf:'Since 2003, I had been busy with a cross-over between jazz andclassical music. I see jazz as a friendly reception room for musicvisitors from every corner of the world. It enriches you, you getunpredictable forms.' For CLAZZ, contemporary composers wereapproached, particularly of jazz and contemporary written music.Composition assignments were given to, among others, David Dramm,Michael Moore, Ilja Reingoud, Jacob ter Veldhuis and KonradKoselleck.
