Felicia van den End is a remarkable and diverse flute player. She distinguishes herself by her sound and timbre in combination with her choice of repertoire varying from classical till jazz and Latin-American music. Her love for the latter originates from her many travels about Latin America. Especially the main role of the flute in this music inspired her to make the album ‘Sonoro’ (Sony Masterworks).
On February 3 she will play De Doelen in Rotterdam with her Quartet.
Line up: Felicia van den End, flute- Marc Bischoff, piano-Mark de Jong, percussion-Marko Bonarius, double bas

Idiosyncratic, Rotterdam-based band Tommy Moustache will release their new album EGO (Berthold Records) April 14, 2017!
After the release of their debutalbum (2014) the band was named Radio 6 Soul & Jazz Talent and played many festivals. 2015/2016 highlights included performances at North Sea Jazz festival, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Jazz International Festival in Rotterdam. Also they were voted audience choice in the 2016 edition of the Dutch Jazz Competition.
Exactly opposed to their debut album, this new album 'EGO' will be an almost megalomanic ode to themselves: full of daring improvisation, rock riffs, humour, mood swings, adventures and everything else these guys could come up with. Release party: April 10-Kantine Walhalla, Rotterdam
