Lotz Of Music



We had intense pleasure performing a couple of concerts in Holland including a CD presentation @ Bimhuis, Amsterdam. A packed house enjoyed our chamber music with an electronic buzz. Slithering with live it was and we had fun. Check the review of our try-out at the gorgeous Beauforthuis at Draai Om Je Oren. A video will be published soon.


Best Of 2019



The debut CD of the Mark Lotz Trio won twice (!) in the BEST OF 2019 of the New York Jazz City Records Magazine in the ‘Honorable Mentions’ and ‘Artwork’ categories. (After been featured twice as New Recommended Release  in their july/august editions.) We are in good company there.

Vol Festival


With many helpers I am busy with organizing a little world music festival in one of the longest flats of Europe: the Vollenhove flats in Zeist. Holland has quite some problems with their disadvantaged areas. Here an attempt to break up the indifference and to connect the people in this neighborhood in music. Keep u updated.
