 TOON’S LATEST RELEASE ANGEL DANCE

Lyrical funky jazz in original compositions, with Weather Report legends Peter Erskine and Alex Acuna on drums and percussion, Karel Boehlee on keyboards, Hein Van de Geyn on double bass and Eddie Conard on percussion.

AngelDance_albumart_600pxAngel Dance was internationally praised as a perfect and wondrous album. US reviewer Scott Yanow wrote: ‘A major veteran saxophonist from Holland who played for years with the Dutch Jazz Orchestra, Toon Roos has been an important jazz artist since the mid-1980s. On Angel Dance, he is heard in prime form. (…) What is particularly noteworthy about Angel Dance is that all ten compositions come from the band (Roos contributed five), and many are worthy of becoming standards in the future. The music ranges from heated romps (particularly “Keep It Going”) to melancholy ballads and relaxed medium-tempo pieces, with Erskine’s “Song For Jaco” being a particularly touching ballad. (…) Angel Dance is a perfect introduction to the music of Toon Roos.’  (Full article on review page)

Vince Mendoza on Angel Dance: ‘Lovely, well played and soulful… the DVD is a cool bonus.’ 

On the included DVD ‘Dancing With Angels’ Toon is interviewed in his home environment on inspiration and several highlights of his musical career, from the making of Angel Dance with drummer Peter Erskine to his tour with Steely Dan and his performances with keyboard legend Joe Zawinul. He speaks about his long-term musical relationship with master pianist/composer Karel Boehlee, highly talented drummer Joost van Schaik and bass virtuoso Hein Van de Geyn. The film includes images from the recording studio with an extensive interview with Peter Erskine, live performances of several groups of Toon at the Bimhuis and the North Sea Jazz Festival, and footage of Toon performing with Joe Zawinul.
