Liner notes

Saskia Laroo is one of those all too few musicians, especially in the jazz world, who appreciates that she is in the entertainment business. To paraphrase her, “When I ‘’m playing I like people to have a good time and dance, this is how jazz started. I don ‘’t just want to play music for other musicians.” She is careful to point out that she has a lot of respect for those musicians who take a more intellectual approach to their music- but it was that scene that nearly lead her to give up on jazz alltogether.
Fortunately for us she didn ‘’t, instead she discovered Jazzdance. IT ‘S LIKE JAZZ is the product of Saskia drawing on all her much in demand musicianship plus her writing and arranging skills to produce an exellent CD full of headnoddingly good grooves. Heavily infulenced by the Jazzdance scene it corporates an eclectic mix of moods, styles and beats with an emphasis on that essential ingredient “swing”. Saskia Laroo and Friends doin’ that thing, check it!
