Stories

Introduction

My story begins in The Hague where I was born into a creative family of musicians, sculptors and ballet choreographers on the exact same day on which the famous Miles Davis quintet performed at the Tivolis Concertsal in Copenhagen and two years before Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first two people to land on the lunar surface. With the inspirational example of my father’s jazzy piano playing in the house, and the guidance of some inspiring teachers, I ...

Music

My interest in jazz and improvisation was sparked at a young age by my father, a professional jazz pianist himself, and I began classical piano lessons at the age of ten. I studied music privately until the age of sixteen when I enrolled in the music program at the Royal Music Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands. I studied with pianists Frans Elsen, Rob van Kreeveld, Geoffrey Douglas Madge and Lanny Kho. I graduated in 1991 and left for a ...

Pressquote

Dat boeket aan felle jazzkleuren schittert straf door op Drumwise. De op Afrikaanse ritmes gestoelde speelwijze van Wim Kegel stoeit met de transparante speelstijl van Marc van Roon. Zijn watervlugge akkoordvelden, afgewisseld met van rusten voorziene, bedachtzame pianospel contrasteert met het enigszins rauwe slagwerkgeluid van Wim Kegel. En vloeit er tegelijkertijd prachtig mee samen.
