In 2022 the Reinier Voet Quartet released their first CD: IMAGES. May 10th 2023 was the CD release in Kapitein Zeppos (see videos in ‘About Reinier’).
With his new group, simply named the ‘Reinier Voet Quartet’, he distances himself ‘stylwise’ from gypsy jazz without losing the link with his great inspiration, Django Reinhardt, and his ‘disciples’ of today and the past.
Although the band has a traditional line up with lead guitar, violin, rhythm guitar, and double bass, the musicians’ roles are freer. The style is more ‘jazz’, more contemporary, and more personal.
This new sound also comes from the fact that most of this new disc, ‘IMAGES’, consists of new compositions by Reinier.
In addition, he is accompanied by musicians unrelated to the gypsy style. The talented violinist Jelle van Tongeren, for example, has a style of improvisation that is more inspired by Jean-Luc Ponty or Sonny Rollins than by the playing of Stéphane Grappelli. On this disc, apart from quartet pieces, there are also pieces played solo, in duets, and in trios.
They performed on the on-line stream jazzstage Whatch Live Jazz, Jazz De Tor (Enschede). They will play in de Cuultuurboerderij in Middelbeers (see Calender).
A concert in the series of The Gitaarsalon will be planned soon.
