Both sharing a passion for improvisation, classical music and absurd humor decided vibist Vincent Houdijk and pianist Rogier Telderman to start a new group. Being the only two member in this band, they've started a joined search to create new soundscapes combining both instruments. Lacking a rhythmsection proves to provide new musical possibilities which they present in lyrical songs, humorous blues, free improv and compositions in line with the great classical composers. An adventurous new jazz chambre ensemble of which you will be hearing more in the near future!
Album will be released in February 2014!
Vincent Houdijk (1981) started aged eight years old with piano lessons. At 15, the sudden passing of his older brother decided him to switch to percussion. After an education for classical percussion performer, he specialised in jazz vibes at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague. Here Vincent studied with Frits Landesbergen and Mike Mainieri (New York).
And this has not gone by unnoticed! He played with famuous Dutch artists like Wouter Hamel, Kyteman, Mathilde Santing, Marco Borsato and Guus Meeuwis among many others. With his own group VinnieVibes, he recently reached the finals of the Dutch Jazz Competition (2012). With this group he will release his first album '15', consisting of own compositions and features by Eric Vloeimans.

Pianist and composer Rogier Telderman (1982) is an inspiring young artist in the Dutch jazz scene. He predominantly plays with and composes for his bands Melphi and the Rogier Telderman Trio. He's influenced by pianists such as Keith Jarrett and Brad Mehldau, classical music (Ravel and Bach) and singer-songwriters. He draws inspiration from daily which he translates into music, viewing it as either processes or viewing it as sounds entirely.
He has already been proclaimed one of Hollands most promising jazzartist (2010), and will release two debutalbums in 2013: one album with the Rogier Telderman Trio and one with Melphi. The latter won the DuvelVibes Challenge 2012, got tracks released on the legendary Blue Note Records label, and signed to Dutch record label SnipRecords for their upcoming album. Besides these bands, Rogier is part of cross-over group TEMKO, led by guitarist Aart Strootman. This group tours in the prestigous Cross-Linx festival and will premiere the November Music festival in 2013.
