1000 BECOMES 2000
In 2004 JAN KLARE (saxophone), together with trumpet player BART MARIS from Belgium, Dutch bassist WILBERT DE JOODE and American drummer MICHAEL VATCHER, founded the group "1000". From its inception, the group incorporated compositions that were rather unusual points of reference for the world of improvised music – pieces by Bach, Ravel, Monteverdi or Gregorian chants – thus establishing a unique style very early on. When Vatcher relocated to NYC in 2017, ELISABETH COUDOUX joined the band on cello, and soon thereafter, at the invitation of Moers Festival 2018, the sixpiece edition "2000", including trombonist STEVE SWELL, was born.
El Negocito Records will be releasing the new album by 2000, called "Plant".
