I sure didn't.
Evil Rabbit Records is a small dutch label, run by artists, run for artists.
And it shows. Beautiful packaging and a beautiful recording.
Between late 2006 and early 2007, Esmée Olthuis (saxes) and Albert van Veenendaal (piano) invited a number of their dutch collegues for a series of concerts at the Bethaniënklooster in Amsterdam, NL.
Corrie van Binsbergen, Joost Buis, Wilbert de Joode and Han Bennink each joined the duo on a couple of pieces and the result is astonishing.
"The Mystery Of Guests" brings us recordings from these Bethaniënklooster sessions.
