Collaboration between Dutch saxophonist Jorrit Dijkstra and Vancouver guitarist Ron Samworth's quartet.

From Vancouver and Amsterdam, two centers of creative music that have forged many links over the years, comes this collaboration between Dutch alto saxophonist Jorrit Dijkstra and Ron Samworth's quartet, one of Canada's tightest jazz units ('tantalizing adventures that open doors to the labyrinths of improvisation, deep groove swing, and surreal playfulness' - Coda). Talking Pictures responds to Dijkstra's hummable melodies with unusual empathy, producing a lyrical, tough, dreamlike set that integrates live electronic processing with free or structured improv. Featuring Peggy Lee on cello, Dylan van der Schyff on drums, and Bill Clark on trumpet.

Talking Pictures, formed in 1993, has toured Canada extensively (as well as Europe) and has received critical recognition for their 'cinematic frame of reference', 'very fresh sound', and 'closely attenuated style of group playing, deliberate yet wholly responsive, with a wonderful sense of space' (Mark Miller, The Globe and Mail).

Jorrit Dijkstra has several European CDs under his own name and has performed or recorded with many Dutch musicians as well as Marty Ehrlich, Jim Black, Mat Maneri, Kenny Wheeler, Barre Phillips, Marc Ducret, and Benoît Delbecq.
