Jim Hall praises CD Joep van Leeuwen Mid-October. Guitarist Joep van Leeuwen unexpectedly received a card from his American colleague Jim Hall. With a handwritten review of Van Leeuwen's CD 'Jazz Guitar Meets Church Organ'. "What a marvelous record! It is the freshest sounding music I have heard in years" and as a joke: Wow! It almost made me religious (but not quite)". Van Leeuwen made the CD with organist Gero Körner. Joep van Leeuwen: "It should be clear that we consider it an incredible honour that this master took the time to listen to this CD and to send us his findings in a postcard."
Jazz Guitar Meets Church Organ
Online review in the German Klassik-Heute. What should one admire most about this CD that takes it listener (me anyway) on a fantastic sound journey and discloses a new, in the beginning maybe disruptive, but intoxicating musical world?
