Free is the title of the first solo album of drummer, percussionist and improviser Joost Lijbaart. It is also the fulfilment of a long-held dream, namely to make an album in which he, besides playing the drums, also plays all other instruments. In this incredibly personal album, he enters into a dialogue with himself. ‘Free has turned into an “inner” journey. It’s about unity, time and space, about what lives deep within and stays hidden for a long time.’
For the Free live shows, Lijbaart is joined by pianist Wolfert Brederode and saxophonist Kika Sprangers who, besides their own instruments, also play various other percussion instruments.
