PIANIST BOELO KLAT SAYS GOODBYE TO ‘THAT’S HOW IT SHOULD BE DONE’
Contrary to what has now become the usual practice, the cd ‘Eyeopener’ by Klatwerk3 contains a comprehensive booklet. On reading through the booklet you will of course be manoeuvred in a certain direction. But anyone who can summon up the patience to listen to this remarkable cd by pianist Boelo Klat without first reading the information, will come in for some wonderful surprises. And come to the conclusion that the hitherto little known Boelo Klat is a musician who is not to be underestimated.
