Welcome on this site of saxophonist Gerlo Hesselink.
Proudly I present my CD-album “Garden of Stones“. It is an album with my jazz quartet together with Dirk Balthaus (piano), Henk Zomer(drums) and Johan Plomp (bass). Besides five of my own compositions, there are compositions made by Dirk Balthaus, Henri Gerrits, Keith Jarrett, Astor Piazzolla and Enrico Pieranuzi. With the player above you can hear snippets of some of the songs.
The CD is received enthusiastically on the CD release tour and in the reviews by the press .
“A wonderful album, an album where goed taste is predominant” (Ton Ouwehand, 12-5-2013, http://www.overuit.nl/jazzfestival )
“I feel that Gerlo Hesselink is a wonderful compositional improviser and his music reflects an interesting new direction.
Gerlo’s alto sound is inspiring to me. His music and playing is meant to reflect and move forward at the same time.” (Dick Oatts, 28-10-2013)
