Pot Laban Baumgarten
Somewhere between foulk and jazz
Pot Laban Baumgarten: the music
Diatonic accordion player, bass player Philip Baumgarten and drummer Freek Laban play European music with influences from other parts of the world. Peter Pot and Philip Baumgarten are the main writers.
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 (marimba, drums and percussion) has left our trio. Freek Laban (drums) has joined our band. The music sounds more intimate now. We love it!
Our new album Izabel was delivered march 2022. We’re very happy the way the album turned out! You van order it by mailing us.
You can llisten to this album on Spotify, Tidal and other streaming services.
