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

A nice concert review in the Berner Zeitung of the concert on July 23 in Switzerland at Langnau Jazz Festival with Tineke Postma Quartet. The quartet shared the stage that evening with the Branford Marsalis Quartet.

Here is a short part of the review by Ulrich Roth (in German):


Elegant, sexy, jugendlich 
Das Konzept von Organisator Walter Schmocker ist bekannt: Zugkräftige Namen im zweiten Konzertteil ermöglichen ihm, weniger bekannte Künstler und Künstlerinnen, die ihm besonders am Herzen liegen, im Eröffnungsset zu berücksichtigen.
Die holländische Saxofonistin Tineke Postma ist eine von ihnen. Bereits als Teenager hat sie mit Candy Dulfer, der Saxofonikone des niederländischen Jazz – oder besser gesagt: Funk – auf der Bühne gestanden, dann aber musikalisch einen anderen, jazzigeren Weg eingeschlagen.
Gleich mit der Eröffnungsnummer «Sea Skies» wurde am Donnerstagabend das Anliegen von Tineke Postma in der Langnauer Kupferschmiede klar: Das Publikum muss gefesselt werden mit starken Melodien, und diese wiederum sollen im Energieaustausch zwischen den Musikern spontan entstehen.
Das erfordert höchste Aufmerksamkeit, viel Mitgefühl und grosse Ohren; Marc van Roon (p), Joost van Schaik (dr) sowie Philippe Aerts (b) haben es. Das energiereiche Spiel auf Sopran- und Altsaxofon heizte ein. Stimmung und Temperatur steigen unentwegt. Kurz vor dem Siedepunkt hiess es: Pause.
