Edgar van Asselt Quartet live – Featuring David Schnitter

About This Project

During a stay in New York, he met ex-Messengers tenor saxofonist David Schnitter at Barris Harris’s weekly workshop. They started a fruitful musical co-operation that lasted for more than 10 years and resulted in two well [cover of penpals] received albums: ‘Penpals’ and ‘A Smooth Journey’. [cover of ‘smooth journey’+spotify embedded link] The music was rooted in hard bop, with a lot of free and post-bop influences added. The quartet played at North Sea Jazz in 2008 and toured Holland and abroad. During one of the gigs in Spain, Jorge Rossy was able to do one of the gigs, which led to a memorable evening.
