ABOUT THE GROUP
The award winning Guy Salamon Group is one of the most notable emerging bands in the new Dutch jazz scene. The band, based in Amsterdam, is led by drummer Guy Salamon and features a highly expressive 8 piece line up.
Ever since their first performances in early 2018, the Guy Salamon Group has made a strong impression on both the national and international scenes, rapidly becoming an integral part of major jazz events including InJazz Festival 2019 (Rotterdam), Fira B! Festival 2019 (Mallorca) and the European 12 points Festival 2019 (Amsterdam).
The band has won the 1st prize at the prestigious Keep An Eye The Records competition (2018), has collaborated with top Dutch jazz artists such as Reinier Baas (Bimhuis 2019) and has been featured in a full length documentary about the new jazz scene in Amsterdam entitled ‘Red Light Solo’.
Their debut album, ‘Unfollow The Leader’ will be festively released in December 2019 and will be followed by an extended release tour in 2020. The album, consisting of all original compositions, features music that urges for a new sound, crossing genres, wildly mixing styles, merging humor with pain and chaos with silence.
