Duo Baars Buis

Ab Baars and Joost Buis are great admirers of Duke Ellington. The apparent simplicity and the clearness of his compositions have had great influence on both players and have shaped their musical worlds.
The duo performs a program inspired by the Duke: well-known and lesser known Ellington pieces, characteristic fragments, famous solos and catchy riffs will be arranged or re-composed as points of departure.
