Pitch Plot Music proudly presents the brand new international quartet initiated by the Dutch jazz flutist Jeroen Pek, PITCH PLOT 4
Like most of his recent projects this again is a multi-national line up with the focus on exchange, adventure and dynamics in its broadest sense.
This American/Dutch/German group contains a set of remarkable features.
One of the most striking feature is the New York based bass player James Cammack. For almost thirty years James has been touring (and recording) as the permanent bass player of piano legend Ahmad Jamal all over our planet. Next to that he worked with international stars like Youssou n’Dour.
Working with PITCH PLOT 4 can be considered as unique and even historic. It is after all the first time James collaborates with European musicians.
James is known for his driving bass playing, virtuosity and incomparable own “voice” both on double bass and bass guitars.
Pianist Christian Pabst is an extraordinary lyrical musician, and a poet at the piano. He gave concerts all over the world with his well known trio.
Born in a small German village close to the French border, he started playing the piano at the age of 7 and became passionate about Jazz when he joined the local bigband. In 2006, Christian moves to the Netherlands to study piano in Amsterdam. Furthermore, Christian was the pianist of the BuJazzO (National German Youth Jazz Orchestra), which gave him the possibility to work with important conductors and artists such as trumpeter Gerard Presencer.
Because of combining power play with a wide array of dynamics and his incomparable sound, Jeroen Pek is internationally known as one of the leading jazz flutist of today. He toured and recorded in many countries as well with his own groups (Jeroen Pek Quartet, PitchWhiteStorm, 6 Spoons, 1 Kitchen) as with international exchange line ups such as Gerard Pansanel (F), Giulia Valle (Sp), Simone Sou (BRAS.), Nabil Khemir (TUN), Fathy Salama (EG). Twice he became finalist of the composition contest of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Intitute of Jazz in Washington D.C. (US).
Dutch drummer Onno Witte is a musical omnivore with a vast reputation. He has been touring the planet with a wide array of projetcs (batucada group Medicamento, jazzrock bands such as PitchWhiteStorm and Alter Ego, acoustic jazz such as WO IV and Jeroen Pek Quartet). His own project, Wildcard, with guest player such as the German saxophonist Volker Winck, is one of the striking high lights in his career. The second cd of this band is on the way.
In the end of February 2013 PITCH PLOT 4 is working and recording new repertoire. The band is touring/available with a new cd from Spring 2013 on.
