PETER BEETS picture
He has shared the stage with jazz greats like Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, Elvin Jones, George Coleman, Johnny Griffin, Chris Potter and John Clayton. He recorded with Jeff Hamilton, Larry Grenadier, Greg Hutchinson and Curtis Fuller and in 2001 his album “New York Trio” was released, which brought him international acclaim.

Peter Beets was born on the 12th of June, 1971 in The Hague. From birth he was surrounded by music: classical from his mother who is a music pedagogue, and jazz from his father who has a great love of Oscar Peterson and Art Blakey. This musical family, which includes two older brothers, Marius and Alexander, moved in 1972 to Groenlo, where Peter received his first piano lessons at the age of six. Although originally both parents did not associate the word “musician” with the word “career”, music is definitely in the family’s blood. Both Marius (1966) and Alexander (1968)

PETER BEETS Chopin Meets The Blues

Album · 2010 · Third Stream
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

Neither much Chopin, nor much blues, but plenty of great swinging jazz. Peter Beets is an acclaimed Dutch jazz pianist who has already done a program around Bach's music called "From Bach to Blues". At a festival dedicated to Chopin in Hague, Peter Beets was asked to play in the foyer as kind of background bar pianist.He refused but instead asked to play Chopin improvisations in one of the halls.His concert entitled 'Chopin Meets The Blues' was a great success and so the idea for this album was born. Chopin's music provides only the starting point for Peter Beets improvisations.Eight rather slow tempo Chopin compositions turn into eight fast tempo swing(a la Oscar Peterson who is one of Peter Beets's heroes) mprovisations in which Chopin's music is sometimes barely recognizable ( not that this should trouble anyone). The Peter Beets Quartet features beside Peter Beets, Joe Cohn( son of tenor sax player Al Cohn) on guitar, Reuben Rogers on double bass and Greg Hutchinson on drums . Why "Chopin meets The Blues" ? Because, according to Peter Beets "....I purposely avoided the word "jazz" itself, because that word tends to turn many people off"??? Does 'Chopin Meets The Blues' sound more attractive than 'Chopin Meets Jazz'? I don't know. Anyway, a very good album, highly enjoyable.
