About the album

  • Drumwise presents Wim Kegel and Marc van Roon revisiting the traditional combination of drums and piano in a contemporary fashion
  • The repertoire recorded contains a broad repertoire made up of originals, improvisations, two songs from the American Songbook, and two from the Duke Ellington band book
  • Both musicians have played and recorded with David Liebman, Michael Brecker, Clark Terry, Bob and Chuck Findley and Ack van Rooyen
  • Kegel has been described as "Never too much, never too little, unexpectedly fierce and sometimes experimental”
  • Van Roon's own Steinway grand and Kegel's extended Gretch drums and cymbals came together in the great acoustics of the Lutherse Kerk in Haarlem and were recorded by sound engineer Bert van der Wolf
  • Available in High Resolution stereo & 5.1 Surround
Mit einem breiten Repertoire aus Eigenkompositionen, Improvisationen, zwei Songs aus dem American Songbook und zwei aus Duke Ellingtons Band Book zeigt Drumwise Wim Kegel und Marc van Roon mit einer traditionellen Kombination von Drums und Klavier auf moderne Weise: nie zu viel, nie zu wenig, unerwartet heftig und bisweilen experimentell.

Van Roon began classical piano lessons at the age of ten. His interest in jazz and improvisation was sparked at a young age by his father Wouter van Roon, a professional jazz pianist.

He studied with pianists Frans Elsen, Rob van Kreeveld, Geoffrey Douglas Madge and Lanny Kho. He graduated in 1991 and left for a post conservatorial study to New York City. There he studied with jazz pianists Barry Harris and Richie Beirach. He returned to the Netherlands in 1993 started his own trio and continued to collaborate with other musicians. At the same time he co-founded the creative artistic consultancy group Art in Rhythm with drummer/percussionist Joshua Samson. Thereafter he started to give lecture based learning experiences for audiences around the world.
