Travel Songbook: Jazz standards with traveling as a main theme. An energetic collection of famous tracks like Take the 'A' Train and Come fly with me in surprising arrangements and with tasteful specials. But also the less famous songs hit the spot, like Voyage from Kenny Barron with lyrics by Judith. A varied and refreshing show that pays homage to the true jazz classics.
Dutch jazz vocal sensation, Judith Nijland, and her very talented bass player Pieter Althuis will be touring in Australia in February 2020. Reunited with their piano player Marnix van Bruggen. They played together for over 15 years in Holland, before Marnix moved to Australia 8 years ago. At this concert they will also be joined by the great Australian drummer Andrew Dickeson.
After graduating from studying the classics, Greek and Latin, Judith studied Jazz at the Royal Conservatory in the Hague (NL). After completion Judith focusses more on writing her own material, but jazz remains her true love.
Judith released 5 albums, got great reviews, lots of airplay and has been touring in her own country, but also played her music in many countries in Europe, in the U.S.A, Australia, Japan, Indonesia and in Thailand.
