Wie is Soo Cho
Soo Cho (South Korea) has been playing piano almost all her life. She took classical lessons since when she was 3 years old. Later Soo studied classical piano at the Sung Sin University in Seoul and followed courses in music history, music philosophy, music pedagogy and many other subjects. After her studies she played piano in hotels around town, but also was professionally involved in the music business. But music kept pulling and after she discovered Jazz, she decided to move to Holland and really study the music she loved.
When Soo arrived in Holland in 2001 she studied at the Utrecht conservatory with Bert van den Brink. After one year she moved to study at the more internationally orientated conservatory in Amsterdam, where she studied with Karel Boehlee, Rob van Bavel and Kris Goessens. Soo has been writing her own songs over the last years and has formed her own trio with which she is playing quite regularly. She lead the jam sessions at the Jazz club in Dordrecht for two years and organized her own monthly concerts at Baseline Theatre. In the season 05/06 and 06/07, she has been invited to do a series of concerts at the DJS Jazzpodium in Dordrecht for which she invited many great soloists from Holland and Belgium. The trio is starting to branch out and starts to play quite regularly. In 2006 Soo graduated from the Jazz Piano department at the Amsterdam Conservatory. In 2008 Soo graduated from the Master Degree Jazz Composition at Royal Conservatory in the Hague. In 2009 Soo also graduated for her Master Degree in Amsterdam for Jazz Piano. Besides this she studied for 1 semester at the Manhattan School of Music in New York. She got lessons from, among others, Jason Moran.
In March 2008, her 1st debut album “PRAYER” was released by Challenge records. The CD presentation took place at the Bimhuis in Amsterdam on March 14th. At the same time the Soo Cho Quartet featuring Angelo Verploegen was selected to play the Young Vips Tour 2008.
In October 2010, her 2nd album “LITTLE PRINCE” is released also by Challenge Records.
Na jarenlang furore te hebben gemaakt met zijn band IDENTIKIT laat gitarist Marzio Scholten (1982) nu van zich horen in triobezetting. Hij presenteert composities gebaseerd op zijn nieuwe, lovend ontvangen, soloproject We Never Left Town dat in januari 2017 uitgebracht is. Uitgangspunten zijn Scholten’s zoektocht naar eenvoud, zijn liefde voor de gitaar én Amerikaanse volksmuziekgenres als folk, blues, jazz en country. Samen met bassist Sean Fasciani en drummer Niek de Bruijn legt Scholten de nadruk op sound en songs; ingrediënten voor aardse en bezielde muziek.Lees meer
