**** review in Jazzism

In the Netherlands there is only one jazz glossy, being Jazzism. How nice can it be to find a four star review of your album in that magazine?!

Reviewer Coen de Jonge writes:”…As a matter of fact she can play anything, no matter if it’s pieces in the hard bop-tradition or more current repertoire…”

The album mentioned can be acquired through this link:

Triplicate at Jazzahead

Triplicate LogoComing weekend pianist Bob Wijnen and me shall be promoting Triplicate at Jazzahead! in Bremen. As we’re always on the outlook for new playing possibilities, this is the ideal spot to meet new people and expand our playing field.

In case you will be there yourself: in between the conferences etc. we’ll be at the Dutch Performing Arts stand (B11) on Friday between 5 and 6pm, Saturday between 12 and 1pm, and at the Sunday jazz brunch with plenty of promotional material.

See you there!

Jazzflits review

jazzflits logoAlmost forgot to mention: in the jazzflits of March 11th there is a very nice review to be read about the Triplicate release “Call of the Wild“. I quote:

Op de debuut-cd ‘Three And One’ (2011) van Triplicate zat ‘good old’ Eric Ineke als gast achter het slagwerk. Collega-recensent Tom Beetz vroeg zich bij de bespreking van de eersteling van trompettiste Ellister van der Molen, pianist Bob Wijnen en bassist Johnny Daly af of de groep zonder Ineke wezenlijk anders zou klinken.
Op het net uitgebrachte ‘Call Of The Wild’ geven de musici het antwoord: nee. Je mist een drummer niet. Wel klinkt het trio moderner. Er staan diverse eigen composities op de release. Het is opnieuw het beheerste geluid van Van der Molens trompet en flügelhorn dat de sound bepaalt.
Wijnen en Daly soleren beslist niet onverdienstelijk, maar de heren zijn hoofdzakelijk dienend in de weer om de dame in het gezelschap te laten uitblinken. En dat doet ze. Met aanstekelijke partijen, die zwaar op de bebop leunen. De flügelhorn klinkt van zichzelf omfloerst, maar ook op trompet kiest Van der Molen voor de Chet Baker-benadering.
Ellister van der Molen heeft goed geluisterd naar alle groten en daar haar voordeel mee gedaan. Haar techniek getuigt van veel ervaring en muzikale lenigheid. Triplicate bestaat uit eind dertigers en begin veertigers, die in tal van combo’s hun sporen hebben verdiend als ‘sideman’. Hun samenspel is zeer hecht en compact, maar die kwaliteit vertaalt zich niet in melodisch opvallende stukken. ‘Call Of The Wild’ lijdt helaas aan een zekere eenvormigheid.

Triplicate in Valkenswaard – a review

Although the band name Triplicate wasn’t really mentioned in this review (nor in the concert announcement) it really was a Triplicate gig we played in Valkenswaard last Sunday. Or actually: Triplicate plus one, for drummer Eric Ineke teamed up with us. And a noteworthy gig it was! Great musical interaction and – next to that – a very enjoyable afternoon, also thanks to the splendid organisation of YesJazz.

Triplicate Album Release Party “Call of the Wild”

November 28 7:30pm – ISS, The Hague

Triplicate’s got a very good reason to celebrate! A new group sound and repertoire consisting of more originals led us to the new album “Call of the Wild”, which will be released on November 28. This album is only for sale online, or on a unique Triplicate usb-stick which you can buy directly from us.

Of course a party like this isn’t complete without a nice concert, and the International Institute for Social Studies (ISS) is willing to support us with their facilities. Doors open at 7:30pm, and the entrance fee is €10, in which a festive welcome drink and a Triplicate surprise pack are included.

We hope to see you all on this beautiful night! – ISS – Kortenaerkade 12 – The Hague – Entrance fee: €10,-

New triplicate band photos

Triplicate press photoTriplicate had a nice littlegroup activity last week: a photoshoot with Piet Gispen. We took loads of photos, but this one represents us the most, we think. In the meanwhile a lot of work is being done on the new Triplicate website. It’ll be in the air soon with news, pictures, videos and a contest.

On the radio

At this very moment I’m listening back the radio broadcast radio maker Casper van Eick sent me of his program ‘Jazz op de Dijk’. He plays tracks of dutch jazz musicians including Sanna van Vliet, Yuri Honing and Triplicate :)

Radio 6 logoLast week I could be heard on radio station “radio6″ with the “E.J. de Graaff Group”.  The stream can be found on Scrolling to 02:37:40 will lead you to “just one of those things”.

Next Tuesday another Triplicate track will be on the air at Arrow FM hosted by Rolf Delfos and Bart Wirtz. Tune in at 22.00 I would say!

March 11th I’ll be back at “Jazz in the Morning”, Radio6. They’ll be playing one or more tracks from the Triplicate cd, and I believe even some music from the latest cd of the all female band “Alice in Dixieland”, in which I have been taking part since 1998.

Update: the broadcast of “Jazz in the Morning” can be heard through

Triplicate video

In October we played in Heemstede with Triplicate. Pianoplayer Bob just found the following video online. Did we enjoy that afternoon! A wonderful audience (it’s some sort of a private jazz club) and a very warm welcome with tea and cookies.

Titia bal

Leticia, here on marimba

Some people just get all the fun… like me! I have the joy of announcing that I’ll be performing in Loosdrecht twice coming months, first occasion being Februari 2nd with ‘Leticia y su Rumbadama. The repertoire of this all-female salsa band spans from traditional Cuban Son to a diversity of Salsa and Caribean styles such as Cha Cha Cha, Guaracha, Son Montuno, Rumba, Plena, Bomba and the very danceable Merengue. It’s music made for dancing, but it can be just as much enjoyed sitting back and listening.

  • Ellister van der Molen – trumpet
  • Mick Paauwe – babybass/backing vocals
  • Lilian Jarad – piano
  • Leticia Bal – conga/footpedals/backing vocals

Three and OneThen March 22nd I’m lucky again: I play there with Triplicate plus Eric Ineke: the successful line-up  as on our cd ‘Three and One’ (iTunes / CDbaby).

Both concerts start at 8.30PM. For more information about the jazzclub, visit
