Pot Baumgarten van Astenrode
Somewhere between foulk and jazz
Pot Baumgarten van Astenrode, the music
Diatonic accordion player, bass player Philip Baumgarten and drummer René van Astenrode play European music with influences from other parts of the world. All the musicians contribute compositions, but Peter Pot is the main composer.
The way Peter Pot plays on the diatonic accordion is a form of art. This is breathtaking music! At times soft and subtle, but it can also be powerful and with great rhythm.
Philip Baumgarten (double bass and bass guitar) has always played jazz, apart from the long collaboration with Peter Pot. The duo cd The hurricane sessions, that he recorded with Amercan saxophone player Bob anram, got 4,5 stars out of 5 in the most important jazz magazine Jazzism in The Netherlands.
René van Astenrode
A few years ago René van Astenrode (marimba, drums and percussion) joined the trio. René also writes beautiful compositions for the band., René is an outstanding jazz drummer.
