Amsterdam jazz guitarist Marzio Scholten is the bandleader of an adventurous quintet that went by the name of Hologram until 2013 and is now called Identikit. The music of this instrumental group is a combination of indie rock and modern jazz, focused on the collective and having as much kinship with bands like Radiohead and Pearl Jam as with experimental jazz formations. Their debut album Garage Moi was released in 2013 and widely acclaimed in the musical press: “This isn't just jazz but universal art," Het Parool raved. Two years later its successor Here Comes A Riot, was again received very favorably. Identikit's reputation as a live act is also excellent. The raw guitar sound, solid horns, the energy: North Sea Jazz will play host to a groundbreaking group.
