Jasper Somsen & Karel Boehlee …

Since many years the Dutch pianist Karel Boehlee and double bassist Jasper Somsen have a very strong musical connection. Besides their duo they collaborated with the Karel Boehlee Trio and the Toon Roos Quartet. Currently they are the core of the Portugese/Brazilian singer Maria Mendes’ band, which will record an new album in January 2019. Recent years the duo invited many great guest musicians like saxophonists Bob Sheppard and Toon Roos, trumpetists Bert Joris and Angelo Verploegen and singer Humphrey Campbell.

Morpheus Enchanted …

In 2017 & 2018 Jasper Somsen composed a 30 minutes suite in six movements.  The music can be best described as improvised chamber music. The story behind the music goes back to Jasper’s very early childhood, when he grew up with a profound love for classical chamber music, jazz piano trios and several famous pop songwriters like Paul McCartney and Sting. More than a decade before he found his instrumental voice (the double bass), Jasper always dreamed of composing larger works: “Morpheus Enchanted”
