Theo Hoogstins: double bass           Vincent Koning: guitar

In the tradition of duo's as like Jim Hall en Red Mitchell (or Ron Carter), these two dutch musicians play a repertoire of  standards, beautiful ballads and compositions by themselves. On of the most characteristic qualities of this duo is the bowed bass by Theo Hoogstins. His classic training at the conservatory in Groningen enables him to bow tunes with a warm and sensitive tone.
Vincent Koning, originally from Den Helder, Holland and nephew of dutch star trumpet player Jarmo Hoogendijk, finished his study at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and studied additionally at the conservatory in Hilversum, sponsored by the Dutch Music Award. He is one of the most talented guitar players of the new generation of jazz musicians, playing very nice harmonized introductions and being a very reliable and inventive accompanist. In 1996 toured through Japan, was part of the conservatory big band, De Boventoon and a number of smaller bands. In the summer of 1998, Vincent and Theo played the North Sea Jazz festival in The Hague, Holland.
