JINJAZZ@LUX - Soo Cho Musician in Residence 2013 – duo met Guus Janssen




Jaarlijks kiest de JIN een Musician in Residence (MiR). De MiR krijgt de gelegenheid middels vier concerten zijn veelzijdigheid te tonen en verder te ontwikkelen. Alles mag, mits eerder nog niet zo gedaan. We kunnen zo voor een poosje een muzikant op het scherp van de snede in zijn ontwikkeling volgen. Bij voorkeur kiezen we daarbij iemand uit de regio om zo ook een stimulans te geven aan de ontwikkeling van de jazz en geïmproviseerde muziek dicht bij huis. In het jaar 2013 is Soo Cho de Musician in Residence. Eerder waren dat Mete Erker, Yonga Sun, Angelo Verploegen en Dion Nijland. We zijn blij dat ze de uitdaging aanneemt en dat ze en uitdagend programma gaat samenstellen.

Programma

February 24th - The music you might know.....

Bezetting
Soo Cho: Piano
Sven Happel: Bass
Jasper van Hulten: Drums

Since Soo Cho has been playing always her own compositions, nobody had a chance to listen how she plays the standards. This concert will be all standards or recognizable music but she will plays this in her own way.

April 10th - Piano Duo Soo Cho & Guus Janssen

This will be a very interesting and unexpected concert. 2 totally different style of pianists meet on the same stage and they are going to communicate in totally different ways. It will be some of Soo's compositions and some of Guus's compositions as well.

After summer

Soo Cho & String quartet.
Soo Cho & singer, and one soloist.

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.

Woodnote

Het Woodnote kwintet is een jazz kwintet bestaande uit 5 jonge muzikanten van het Codarts conservatorium in Rotterdam. Vooraan de band staat een energieke blazerssectie van twee saxofoons, die geregeld versterkt worden door een toegevoegde gitaarpartij. Hierdoor klinken de themas sterk, origineel en avontuurlijk en krijgt de blazerssectie een eigen klank die zich onderscheidt van andere andere bands.
