It has been busy during ADE 2019 with some amazing musical highlights. When all the DJs, Producers, Record Label chiefs, A&R’s etc of the Electronic Dance World gather in Amsterdam for the annual ADE event the city is jammed with topnotch events.

The schedule for this month is also nice, playing for the sports brand Under Armour, performing on the Steinway grand piano at the Sohohouse Amsterdam, jazzing it up at Nick Vollebregt in Laren with my jazzy duo act.

Coming up: a private party in The Haque’s unique location Mama Kelly, the weekly Saturdaynightlive show’s at Kitchen & Bar van Rijn located on the Rembrandtplein in Amsterdam and some live jazz gigs in- and around town with some of my fav Contrabass players.

Naming Contrabass players: this wednesday I will be in the amazing studio of Nando Eweg (soundslikenando) to record baselines with my man Thomas Pol on Contrabass and bassgitar. Looking forward to that one big time. Got some new tracks in the sleeve to get mixed down soon.


Jazzy Derk has a wide range experience in playing piano for hotels, restaurants, private parties, jazzclubs and has keen hands for blending his free improvisation style with the audience and surrounding he attends to.

This snippet was made in the Sohohouse Amsterdam on the beautiful Steinway Grand Piano in restaurant Cecconi’s.

Enjoy this free style improv by Jazzy Derk.
