News: Release new CD:  Wild Man Conspiracy & Chris Cheek
Live At The Bimhuis
Label: Red Piano Records – New York – 2018

‘Aanstekelijk spelplezier
Er overkomt de luisteraar iets bijzonders.’
Trouw ★★★★ january 2019

It continues to fascinate!
Volkskrant (NL) – ★★★ january 2019

This trio always finds a nice balance between musical tradition and playfulness. 
A great example of an original approach to music – JAZZISM  (NL)★★★★1/2

There is something insistent, lyrically wide-ranging and wildly fascinating about the untamed expression. Technically, the four musicians are at the height of their instrument’s potential, artistically challenging each other and others – and that is what makes their live performance so fascinating.
Ivan Rod – Denmark – 2019

”An impressive live recording at the Bimhuis full of appealing melodies in a cinematic ambiance starring soloist Chris Cheek who worked with big names like Charlie Haden, Bill Frisell and Brad Mehldau. The band finishes the album with Kleijn’s sublime composition “No More Tango”.
Noordhollands Dagblad december 2018 ★★★★1/2
