Le Noci, Krijger & Ineke is an organ trio born in the Hague in 2021 from the need to bring the generations together in swing and deep groove!
With a deep connection to the blues and real jazz influence, the soulful sound of the trio brings the mastery and expertise of two points of reference in the international jazz scene such as Arno Krijger on Hammond Organ and Eric Ineke on Drums and cymbals to the new, fresh voice of the young Enrico Le Noci on guitar.
The repertoire follows the footsteps of Jimmy Smith, Larry Young, Grant Green and their trios, and expands on it with original music broadening the repertoire for this classic formation.
In this series of concerts the trio will invite a special guest between the finest musicians in the local jazz scene.
