New Album Out Now

All arrangements and compositions of me, arranged for and performed by

The Pamplona Jazz Orchestra of Inaki Rodriguez

HOME new album Ilja Reijngoud

A new, hip, modern, energetic and groovy jazz-rock album of my new band. 8 tracks played by an all-star line-up, Rob van Bavel (keys), Tom Beek (ten sax), Udo Pannekeet (bass) and Marcel Serierse (drums). 


Some great soloists add their artistic contribution to this unique album. First off all Tineke Postma, who plays a beautiful solo on Easy Conversations. Furthermore Angelo Verploegen, gets wild on a NO-type groove, Ed Verhoeff guitar on a traditional partido alto, Oscar Cordero plays beautiful flugelhorn and Berend van Gurp nails the shit out of it on his bassbone.
