THE STORY OF ANGEL DANCE
Former Weather Report drum legends Peter Erskine and Alex Acuna both play on Toon’s sixth album Angel Dance, which will be released worldwide on Challenge Jazz in the autumn of 2011. The music of Angel Dance can be described as ‘lyrical funky jazz' with world music influences like jungle, African music, Brazilian samba, New Orleans Second line and American funk. Groovy, in the moment, open and spacious, the music of Angel Dance is breathing, spontaneous and highly expressive... Dutch jazz masters Karel Boehlee on grand piano and synthesizers and the renowned Hein van de Geyn on double bass have played with Toon for many years now and know each other well from their international tours with Toots Thielemans. Toon and Karel have been musical partners for more than 25 years. In November 2008 Peter Erskine joined these musicians on stage and in the studio… The compositions on Angel Dance are written by Toon Roos, Karel Boehlee and Peter Erskine. The album includes a DVD with a film by John Twigt on Toon’s musical career and the making of Angel Dance. Three songs from their concert at the Bimhuis in October 2009 have been included on the DVD and were used for the documentary entitled 'Dancing With Angels - A Musical Portrait Of Toon Roos'. Also it includes interviews with Toon, Peter and Karel, and images of Toon performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival with his quartet and with Joe Zawinul.
