“Buku of Horn, ArnoB plays JacobTV” is Arno Bornkamp´s first cd entirely dedicated to the composer Jacob ter Veldhuis.
´Buku of Horn´ basically means ´lots of saxophone´. And that´s exactly what describes a large part ter Velhuis´ business the past 10 years:
Started in 1998 with 'Pitch Black' for sax quartet and boombox for the Aurelia Sax Quartet, he has extensively build his repertoire for saxophone after that. Instigator as of the first moment is Arno Bornkamp, mondially considered being one of the most influencing classical saxophone players. His performances of works bij Ter Veldhuis helped spreading their popularity enormously throughout the world. Tho classically orientated, Bornkamp has a lot of affinity with jazz, and exactly that is what helps him perform the music of JacobTV: in the pieces for boombox, in which musical pieces are bundled with vocal samples, loads of elements from jazz, blues and hiphop are used often, and they help create a virtually perfect playground for Bornkamp's performances.
