Around 2005 Sanna asked her former teacher Eric Ineke to join a trio with Marius Beets on double bass, another musician that Sanna always wanted to ask to form a band with. She also asked Ferdinand Povel, renowned tenor saxophonist, to play along on their first album “A Time For Love”. After doing their cd-presentation at the Bimhuis, Amsterdam in 2007, many wonderful concerts at great jazz venues and festivals followed, mostly with Ferdinand Povel as a steady guest.
A Time For Love is the first album of the Sanna van Vliet Trio , which is a tribute to Shirley Horn who passed away in 2005.
Musicians: Sanna van Vliet-vocals/piano, Marius Beets-bass, Eric Ineke-drums, Ferdinand Povel-sax.
The trio released their second album “Dance on the Moon” in 2010 with guests Joe Cohn (USA)-guitar and Sjoerd Dijkhuizen-tenor saxophone. On this cd live tracks are included of the theatre tour they did together in 2009.
