‘only a fragment carries the mark of authenticity’ [Bertold Brecht]

As of today i’ll be posting recordings from my archives. New, and not so new songs, or just simple fragments that I recorded over time, are posted here.
Mostly solo efforts, but also with my musical brother Luuk de Weert and
various guests and friends and even a band. Instant collage, electric chamber music, improvisation, songs , instrumentals, r&b, gospel, chanson-electronique
From Fi to Lo-Fi to No-Fi ….

all music and lyrics by Andre Hogeslag except where noted otherwise

Today’s release contains 4 songs

“DOWN THAT ROAD BEFORE”

Recorded by the Bopshop. Ferry van der Werff: Wurlitzer e.piano and Hammond organ; Luuk de Weert: drums; Mischa Boeren: double bass; Andre Hogeslag: el. guitar and vocals.
[listen to the beautiful detailed original organ playing by Ferry, in the best French and American tradition!]
Arranged by the Bopshop and recorded by Harold Jalving.

‘Ça ira’ [it’ll be fine]
[La ou ça ira, on sera mieux/ where it was, i shall be. J.L.Godard]

Theme song, entirely made in Garagaband!
[my take on j-pop]

‘FANTASIA for piano’
i like the tradition of the 15th Century idea of the fantasia with it’s roots in the art of improvisation. It seldom follows the textbook rules of any strict form.

‘LET LOVE TAKE OVER’

acoustic guitar, vocals and lloopp/ppooll

combining the chanson tradition [singer songwriter] with the world of electro-acoustic music: chanson-electronique!
