STUG

Gerri put together an international quintet for a one-off appearance during the Bimhuis October Meeting Festival in 2016. Without rehearsing they played an impressive fifteen minutes of fluent and vibrant music. A year later he extended the repertoire a full set of stubborn compositions and infectious
improvisation concepts. The music was successfully premiered at the Gerri Jäger Carte Blanche concert at the Bimhuis Amsterdam and during the Get Close to Talent Concert Series at the Korzo in The Hague.

“Instruments in free fall, a musical amusement park of uninhibited tumbling and daredevil acrobatics.” (Korzo)

“Dark, hypnotic, very nicely composed and played super tight.” (FRNKFRT, Peter Bruyn)

“STUG, remember that name, we will hear more from them.” (Draai om je oren, Ben Taffijn)
