About: Ineke Vandoorn & Marc van Vugt
Marc and Ineke have released 12 CD’s. Their original approach has taken them to clubs and festivals over the world, including Canada, USA, France, Germany, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Austria, Macedonia and Hungary. They recorded a.o. with the Dutch Metropole Orchestra (conducted by Vince Mendoza), composed and performed a project with Het Nederlands Kamerkoor (the Dutch Chamber Choir), and created an improvised opera collaborating with a poet.
“When jazz singer/lyricist Ineke van Doorn won the prestigous Edison Jazz Award for her album ‘Love is a Golden Glue’ the jury wrote:”Ineke van Doorn distinguishes herself as a singer with her adventurous way of singing. First of all because of her exceptional, striking voice with an extreme range with which she can do anything. Her voice control enables her to cross her limits. Every note is placed at the right spot. Apart from that the singer has a huge amount of guts. She lets herself go completely in panting notes, growling howls and colourful improvisations. She follows the trumpet sounds of Vloeimans effortlessly, but she can also duel with the guitar playing of Van Vugt. She is direct, knows how to swing and seems to tell her own story in every piece.”
Guitarist Marc van Vugt takes you along an eclectic blend of wide spread influences of jazz- and brazilian music and rock- and free improvised music.
Marc and Ineke also worked and recorded with artists like Kenny Wheeler(UK), Robin Eubanks (USA), Sylvain Beuf (F), Andy Sheppard (UK), Don Thompson (CA), David Linx (F), Norma Winstone (UK), Mario Pavone (USA),Thomas Chapin (USA), Paul van Kemenade (NL). Invited by the Dutch government, they worked and lived for two years in The Vandoesburghouse, Paris. They are both highly experienced educators as well. Ineke’s 300 page book on singing ‘Singing from the inside out’ was released in English in 2016.
Whether it is a full acoustic, an electric semi acoustic or a big jazz box: if it has strings for me it sings. When I play the guitar I am always looking for things to surprise me. Or maybe I should say that things are always surprising me as they happen. Each time they are new. It could be anything that starts this movement, a sound on the guitar, an effect I am using or something else in the room. Once it starts it takes of by itself. Do I play or am I played??? There is only this moment and only this sound now. Playing the guitar is very similar to how I approach my composing: I feel like getting that big box of coloured pencils again that I got when I was 7 years old and I am allowed to use them all. A bit of sound here, and a bit of rhythm there…… I feel like I have this pallette and a big canvas to fill. When I play or compose I always feel like a painter. Painting not only with the instrumental possibilties but even more with the individual possibilties of the specific players I am playing with and what they might contribute.
