Maybe you know it already, but there’s a new venue in town:
the North Sea Jazz Club!
Recently I was able to go see Fred Wesley & The New JB’s there and also Bob James’ Four Play.
It’s a beautiful venue where you can see world class acts in an intimate atmosphere.
Next to the main room there’s also a seperate bar area where you can find DJ’s spinning every thurday, friday and saturday.
North Sea Jazz Club is located on the Westergasterrein, next to the Westerpark, in Amsterdam.
A selection from the concerts that are planned in the next couple months:
British soul singer Omar, Ghanese living legend Ebo Taylor with the Afrobeat Academy from Berlin,
the orchestry of the late Sun Ra: the Sun Ra Arkestra, Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara
and the father of Ethio-jazz vibraphonist Mulatu Astatke, to just name a few.
Check out the recommended gigs section on this site for info on these and many more recommended concerts!
