The band Equinox is a collective of five like minded musicians who share the desire to celebrate a common sense of balance; that between tension and resolution, between dissonance and consonance, between the present and the past.
Based in the Netherlands, Equinox is co-lead by Guitarist Dan Nicholas and bassist Johnny Daly. Nicholas comes from New York City and Daly is a native of Dublin, Ireland. Both musicians have made the Netherlands their home, inspired by the rich jazz climate they found there.
Joining Nicholas and Daly in Equinox are three of the country’s top jazz musicians; the soulful and powerful tenor saxophonist Sjoerd Dijkhuizen, the elegant and adventurous pianist Bob Wijnen and master drummer Marcel Serierse.
The band plays a mix of vivid original pieces, personal arrangements of standards and classic jazz repertoire by the likes of Thelonious Monk, Billy Strayhorn, Charles Mingus and Horace Silver.
Equinox is deeply rooted in a wide spectrum of jazz tradition, which constantly informs the band’s musical explorations. The individual members of the band all draw inspiration from this tradition in the development of their own personal avenues of musical expression. http://www.equinoxjazzquintet.com
