Tony Overwater and his Faunus Violone

This summer film maker Pim Hawinkels filmed me and my Faunus violone at the Chapel in St. Jean. It’s the fifth film we made together at this magical location in a little village in the middle of France.
The first time I recorded my solo composition ‘Chanson d’un Faune’ on the Faunus Violone built by Gesina Liedmeier.

Five Star Review Graffiti Jazz in Jazzthetik

The album Graffiti Jazz received a 5 star review by the prestigious German Jazz magazine Jazzthetik.

“Once an avid sprayer (hence the album title Graffiti Jazz), Rembrandt Frerichs (44) now teaches at the conservatory and curates concerts (when they are allowed to take place). With Tony Overwater (b) and Vinsent Planjer (dr), the Dutchman leads a trio that has been celebrated for years. The trio’s new album aims to translate the cheeky euphoria of graffiti street art directly into jazz: Unbridled motorik is the trump card. The musical inspiration for these clanking, machine-like, galvanized rhythms could be found in speed metal, but also in Bulgarian wedding dances, rattling clockworks or perhaps even a newly and differently heard Johann Sebastian Bach. What drummer Planjer does here, with cymbals, rattles, bells, and other metal parts, is reminiscent of a clattering, over-the-top mechanical contraption.
Ingeniously, though, this crazy motorwork combines with great improvisation, even swing (“The Big Over Easy”) or a Paul Simon song – “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover” has never had so much funk.
To take a breather, there are two ballads, one of them with the most beautiful of all Brahms themes.”

New Rembrandt Trio recordings

We spent two days recording a new album in the amazing acoustics of the Orgelpark in Amsterdam. Full of antique organs with thousands of different sounds – the trio used the space, instruments and acoustics as their fourth band member. All captured for Just Listen Records by Jonas and  Jared Sacks in high quality audio and video. We can’t wait to hear the first mixes!
