The Netherlands, a tiny country in Europe mostly known for its windmills and tulips but there's more. During the last couple of years quite some bands -heavily into crossing over improv, noise rock and free jazz- emerged from the polders to wreak sonic havoc. Since the Netherlands is pretty small it didn't take long before they met each other, started doing shows together and borrowed players from each other for bigger improv ensembles and new bands. With a scene this strong the time felt right to make a nice (but incomplete) document of it, resulting in the 'The New Wave Of Dutch Heavy Jazz' compilation.
