Live at Shaffy Theater: A Concert by Two Dutch Jazz Greats

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 48 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

Recorded on Nov. 16, 1974 at the Shaffy Theater in Amsterdam, a concert of avant-garde jazz, performed by Willem Breuker on saxophones and clarinets and Leo Cuypers on piano. These two jazz greats from the Netherlands move seamlessly from radical free jazz to more lyrical musings, at times quoting famous popular melodies, before meandering back into more improvisational territory, all to the notable amusement of the audience. This energetic performance was recorded by the folks at VPRO Radio in the Netherlands just a month before the performance that was immortalized on the 1974 LP “Live in Shaffy”. Settle down for 48 minutes of continuous music from two of Holland's greatest jazz musicians.

Sadly, Breuker recently passed away in 2010.
