About the album

The Dam Jawn is a band consisting of five young musicians from the Amsterdam Jazz scene who found together through a shared experience in the United States. Having lived together in Philadelphia for half a year, they found their collective voice by composing and arranging new music inspired by their experience.

Although all five live and are active in Amsterdam, the Quintet is international. Martín Díaz (alto sax) and Joan Fort (guitar) were born in Barcelona, Spain. Philip Lewin (bass) in Stuttgart, Germany and Nitin Parree (drums) as well as Frank Groenendijk (tenor saxophone) are from the Netherlands.

Their debut album features legendary alto saxophonist Dick Oatts, who also mentored them through the process of writing and arranging and their music. The Dam Jawn have shaped their own sound, inspired by the energy and feeling of the current Philadelphia Jazz scene, as well as its rich musical past.
The Dam Jawn ist eine Band, die aus fünf jungen Musikern der Amsterdamer Jazzszene besteht, die durch eine gemeinsame Erfahrung in den Vereinigten Staaten zusammengefunden haben. Nachdem sie ein halbes Jahr lang gemeinsam in Philadelphia gelebt hatten, fanden sie ihre gemeinsame Stimme, indem sie neue Musik komponierten und arrangierten, die von ihren Erfahrungen inspiriert war.

Obwohl alle fünf in Amsterdam leben und aktiv sind, ist das Quintett international. Martín Díaz (Altsaxophon) und Joan Fort (Gitarre) wurden in Barcelona, Spanien, geboren. Philip Lewin (Bass) in Stuttgart, Deutschland und Nitin Parree (Schlagzeug) sowie Frank Groenendijk (Tenorsaxophon) kommen aus den Niederlanden.

Auf ihrem Debütalbum ist der legendäre Altsaxophonist Dick Oatts zu hören, der sie auch beim Schreiben und Arrangieren ihrer Musik unterstützt hat. The Dam Jawn haben ihren eigenen Sound entwickelt, inspiriert von der Energie und dem Gefühl der aktuellen Jazzszene in Philadelphia sowie von der reichen musikalischen Vergangenheit der Stadt.
