Freeform jazz improvisation from renowned Dutch guitarist Peter Tiehuis and band, when they performed one of their regular gigs, at the acclaimed 't-Oude Pothuis venue in Utrecht, The Netherlands, on Wednesday, January 18th, 2012.
Extract from Peter's website:
One of Holland's leading guitar players, Peter Tiehuis's versatility has enabled him to play almost any kind of music and has led to many recording dates, also in Belgium, Germany and England, for records and broadcasting.
In 2008, he formed his own Peter Tiehuis Trio with contrabass player Frans van der Hoeven and drummer Arno van Nieuwenhuize. In this setup he's experimenting with totally improvised concerts based on electronics, effects and soundscapes.
Over the years he has played with Toots Thielemans, Benny Goodman, Freddie Hubbard, Stan Getz, Tania Maria, Al Jarreau, Tina Turner, Chaka Khan, Charlie Mariano, Vince Mendoza, Mike Stern, Bob Mintzer, the Yellow Jackets, Jasper van 't Hof, Gino Vannelli, Cliff Richard, the Brecker Brothers, Ilse de Lange, Randy Crawford, George Duke, Herbie Hancock, Trijntje Oosterhuis, Steve Vai, Adrian Belew and many others.
After teaching for about 10 years at the Amsterdam Highschool of Arts, he regularly gives guitar workshops. Since 2005 he is part of the Paul Berner Band (with fellow guitar player Ed Verhoeff, drummer Hans van Oosterhout, Michael Moore on reeds, Paul Berner on contrabass). With dutch star singer Trijntje Oosterhuis he is doing small tours and gigs. Together with bassguitar player Theo de Jong and percussionist Bart Fermie he formed the trio '3HandsClapping' which resulted in their cd "Shaman Dance". Lately he's collaborating with the dutch flugelhorn player Ack van Rooyen and the New York poet/writerEdward Field to work on a cd recording where poems and music are mixed.
From Poolguitar blog:
Peter Tiehuis is Holland's number one session player. As one of the guitarists of the Metropole Orchestra he has played with many great names in the business. You may have seen him next to Steve Vai, Pat Metheny or John Scofield. Not many guitarists can do this and win the respect of these outstanding collegues. He has played on countless cd, film scores and commercials. He still finds time to play with his own trio 3HANDSCLAPPING with bassplayer Theo de Jong and percussion player Bart Fermie. Check out his website for some amazing audio files of his new impro-project with Arno van Nieuwenhuize on drums and Frans van der Hoeven on bass.
