It was a special evening for the Millennium Jazz Orchestra playing a CD release concert at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam. The MJO played some new composed and arranged tunes and of course some charts of the CD ‘Safety Zone’. The first set ended with the opening tune of the CD!
After the break Dutch guitarist Anton Goudsmit joined the band. Anton was featured in several compositions of him, arranged by Henri Gerrits and Joan Reinders.
Reinders wrote a new composition for the Millennium Jazz Orchestra, featuring Anton Goudsmit and Volker Winck on tenor saxophone: The Sentry Box.
It was a fantastic concert with an enthusiastic audience who gave us standing ovations. Lovely!
You can see the orchestra and Goudsmit performing The Sentry Box on the Millennium Jazz Orchestra’s YouTube channel.
The concert was recorded on video, in the coming months more videos will be released.
