Joel Hoekstra

REVIEWS

Joel’s latest is a pleasant surprise, offering a sound which is unique and quite indefinable. Although largely influenced from Jazz, it also goes into Rock, Classical and several other genres, resulting in something quite different. And that’s a good thing.

Hoekstra’s talent has been proven in the past, he plays well and doesn’t overdo-it for the sake of flashiness. He’s accompanied here by Planet X’s Virgil Donati and Ric Fierabracci (Andy Summers, Chick Corea) on bass. Definitely a winning combination.

Joel Hoekstra’s work certainly deserves that we pay attention to it as he is one of those artist’s who give us quality heart-felt material. Great music for the sake of being great.
