Ellister van der Molen – trumpet and flugelhorn
Bob Wijnen – piano
Ellister van der Molen and Bob Wijnen share their love for jazz music in all its variety.
After many years of playing together in several bands, now they present themselves as a duo. Besides originals of both players, the repertoire will consist of works of Billy Strayhorn, Kenny Wheeler and Lennie Tristano, among others.
Ellister van der Molen is gradually on the rise. Next to playing concerts with her steady bands such as Triplicate (in which Bob Wijnen is the pianist) she is frequently being asked as a guest soloist both in the Netherlands and abroad. Recent highlights are Java Jazz, National Concert Hall Dublin, Glastonbury Festival and the recording of new albums with Triplicate, Zulemax and Gerardo Rosales and her own quartet: Smalls NYC
Bob Wijnen is a pianist of great sensitivity and depth. Much in demand as an accompanist, he is known for having some of the best ears around, as well as being an elegant and adventurous soloist who has absorbed a great deal of the history of jazz piano. He can be heard on cds of – amongst others – Maygus, Sanna van Vliet and Equinox, the latter being one of his steady bands. You’ll be able to find more information at www.bobwijnen.nl.
