Arnold Dooyeweerd

For this performance, Arnold has chosen his best compositions. Where else than at the BIMHUIS, where he has been leading the weekly workshops sinds 1974? The band name Flying Low makes sense, since most themes are played on bass, while Anton operates as the afterburner. 

Even before his classical training, Anton Dooyeweerd was part of the Dutch jazz scene. He performed with celebrated Americans such as Ben Webster, Dexter Gordon, Don Byas, Johnny Griffin, Art Taylor, Kenny Drew and Chet Baker. Anton Goudsmit is the founder and main composer of The Ploctones and co-initiator of chamber jazz quartet Estafest. ‘He’s called the most amusing guitarist in The Netherlands, because of his ecstatic and fully dedicated way of performing’ (de Volkskrant).
