The Story of ‘Live on Stage’:
At the end of 2019, we decided to organize a concert in association with the team of Swing Wespelaar festival, to record a new Live CD in succession of the successful, critically acclaimed “Chasing Shadows” album of 2018.
At the time, no one had the faintest idea that two months later corona would submerge the world, causing a standstill in the entire live scene, and make the world suddenly look different. As a result, our album release was delayed and the scheduled promotion tour through Europe was all of a sudden canceled.
Nevertheless, we decided to release the record this year because this album has something special and we want to share the Live corona free vibe of that particular night. We hope this record will recall the atmosphere of a live concert without restrictions and how life will hopefully look again in the near future.
This album is a powerful recording of a great night with tons of energy.
We wish all of you the very best, stay healthy and enjoy our new record.
