New Project From Amsterdam Guitarist, Siebren Smink

Published

on

The release of Stories (8th March) marks a new chapter in the career of guitarist Siebren Smink and his group Areia.

With the unusual quartet lineup that eschews both bass and drums, the musicians (piano, trumpet, sax, guitar)  bring to life seven original compositions in a journey that runs from the lightness and lyricism of chamber jazz, to starkly contrasting freer modes of expression, all within a few bars.

Early influences such as Pat Metheny, who led Smink to study jazz, are only lightly detectable as the guitarist forges his own musical landscape that in turn filters through his compositions. A feminist revolution, a deaf activist and an uneven clock are all intertwined in the fertile imagination of the composer.

The latest project makes full use of these carefully chosen sidemen and draws on a multitude of experiences, telling Siebren’s stories through intricately interwoven quartet line.
