It must have been a very fruitful class, all four are hyper talented and ambitious: Robin on saxes, Harmen Fraanje on piano, Flin van Hemmen on drums and Clemens van der Feen on bas. For the second release of this quartet the extremely in demand Harmen Fraanje was replaced by our fellow countryman and Fender Rhodes wizard Jozef Dumoulin. Today, just four years later, all four musicians have made their mark in their national as well as on the international jazz scene. Apart from Narcissus, Verheyen has an international quartet and currently lives and works in New York. Drummer Flin van Hemmen also moved to the capital of jazz and works with, among others, Peter Bernstein, Michael Brecker and Tony Malaby.
In this second Narcissus CD extra timbre is brought forward by Dutch guitarist with Argentinian roots Guillermo Celano. He also studied at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and apprenticed himself with big shots such as Peter Bernstein, Lee Konitz and Mark Turner. His guitar playing is interspersed with rhythmic and harmonic elements from folk and Argentinian tango, but also provides enough space for improvisation.
