Playtime with Jorrit Dijkstra

About Playtime with Jorrit Dijkstra

Saxophonist Martin Kershaw and guitarist Graeme Stephen founded Playtime with bassist Mario Caribe and drummer Tom Bancroft in 2014 to give them an opportunity to try out new ideas, play new compositions and pay homage to jazz giants.

They've since created a real buzz around the Outhouse in Broughton Street's loft space every second Thursday by presenting informal sessions of superb quality. Tributes have been paid to Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny, to name just a few of the heroes whose music the quartet has honoured, and an album of completely free improvisation, showing another side of Playtime, has been released to considerable acclaim.

During lockdown, the quartet has continued its quest for adventure, live-streaming from multiple locations.

This latest session features Dutch saxophonist Jorrit Dijkstra. He spent his formative years in Amsterdam’s vibrant improvisation community playing jazz, free improvisation, and world music. Since moving to the United States in 2002, Dijkstra has deepened his affinity with the experimental forces of American music, while staying in touch with his Dutch musical roots. Jorrit works as a composer and is an Associate Professor at Berklee College of Music and a faculty member of the New England Conservatory in Boston
