    A First Year In Holland

    Erly Thornton - Night ProfileI have now been in Holland for a little over a year. In fact our 1st day was only a week ago today. It took some getting used to. The city of Amsterdam is fabulous and busy. The weather however is not good to say the least. Coming from Florida it was an adjustment. Getting into the music scene took even more of an adjustment but I think good things are happening!

    My Debut Concert for Jazz Rock Cafe in Hengelo sponsored by Smooth Jazz EU was a hit and served to crack a few doors open. The owners of Smooth Jazz EU, Inge Wentzel and Marijn Eland are great people and have promised many more events. In fact Inge works with Jazz Fusion Superstar Chieli Minucci when he is on the continent and we have in the plans a few performances together when he next comes in October. Stay Tuned.

    Booking gigs was hard in the US. It is impossible here without having some help and as I result I have signed with Multi Artist Productions for European management. This is pretty exciting as I am already in the studio with them recording a joint project with another of their artists and there are more in the works. Lots of shows are planned and the company is building their own concert venue.

    Jam Sessions are the way to go in the meantime. I have found that the “Jamm Sessie” is what all the musicians do here, both Big and Small time as much as they can. I am playing at one in Almere Buiten monthly but the big one where “anyone” is likely to show up is in Amsterdam. Candy Dulfer comes by and brings the crew sometimes so I will keep you posted on that also.

    So stay in touch because there are some nice things happening soon.
