The Inventors

Ever since 2007 Frans van Geest (bass), Vincent Koning (guitar) & Rob van Bavel (piano) started their ‘drumless trio’ they have have been very successful with ‘The Ghost, the King & I.
They performed several times in Asia (South Korea/Japan), in Siberia and numerous times in Europe. Moreover, the trio released 6 CDs !
The most recent recording is a very special one……the trio playing with the String section of the world famous Metropole Orchestra.
