JAZZY DERK JAZZ TRIO

Having listened at a young age to many hours of Oscar Peterson , Monty Alexander, Errol Garner, playing blues and jazz tracks on lot’s of beautiful vinyl tracks, Jazzy Derk has auto-didactly recorded many of these maestro’s style in his hearing. 

Including 8 years of private lessons by Dutch piano jazz legend Rob Agerbeek, has given lot’s of leverage to his style of playing.

It is not so much about great technical jazz skills, but more in the timing and feel of playing the piano which makes Jazzy Derk a very pleasant pianist to work with.

In this video the Oscar Peterson blues-feel is to be noticed so please enjoy. When you book Jazzy Derk as a pianist with his Jazz duo you can be sure you will get a vibes like this during your event. Enjoy the music.

THE PIANIST DJ

On this video the specific skill set of “the pianist dj” can be heared, seen and felt. 

With tailor-made mashup beats the space to play funky keyboard solo’s and pave the way for live artists is being created. 

The idea for this was born in 1996/1997 when Jazzy Derk started working together with DJ Mr Melle and Hans Dulfer. They surely were one of the first innitiators in the Netherlands to start combining jazz musicians alongside DJs.
