Two top Dutch bands on a single stage: that can only happen at the North Sea Jazz Festival. On this occasion, Mona Lisa Overdrive and Fullduplexx will be sharing the limelight. Bassist Stefan Lievestro is a master of improvised music. With Mona Lisa Overdrive, he has been making "jazz rock of the future" as reviewers like to call it, since 2007. With tenor saxophonist Jasper Blom and organist Arno Krijger among its members, this group is able to set itself apart by playing adventurous and challenging compositions within an explosive framework. Fullduplexx is the band of trombonist Louk Boudesteijn who is also the musical leader and a co-founder of the Rotterdam Jazz Orchestra. With Fullduplexx, Boudesteijn has formed a band for which the musicians have been carefully selected. This results in the playing of their own compositions in which electro, funk, rock and improvised jazz are interwoven in an ingenious manner. Anything goes, as the musicians themselves say. A slogan that applies to both bands.
