During the 42nd edition of the North Sea Jazz Festival were Sunday among others, Van Morrison, The New Power Generation and Jamiroquai on stage. NU.nl put the most reviews in a row.

Van Morrison

Telegraph – give no stars

“Of Morrison (71) does not know to stop. Why would he? The Northern Irishman sings and plays still many a talent effortlessly. Amazing that all those old people so well continue to do so at the North Sea.”

NPO Radio2 – give no stars

“When Van Morrison concert at the North Sea Jazz begins with a solid opener Too Late, it looks like a regular show of the Northern Irish singer. Nothing is less true, because a few songs later, accompanied Candy Dulfer him at Moon Dance and then comes also fellow saxophonist Maceo Parker, known from the band of Prince, on stage. The two guest musicians will stay for the rest of the live-action horns with The Man who, more than ever, in his element it seems. And that says a lot.”

The New Power Generation

The NRC gives no stars

“Festive was the tribute to Prince by his backing band The New Power Generation. But the aimless hitsrevue also made up for the lack of late sleek charismatic musical leader extra palpable.”

The EAR gives no stars

“His hits sound the p.a. between the shows, are the shirts you see everywhere, and his songs are the most gecovered at this festival: the lack of Prince reached on North Sea Jazz festival every year it’s peak. Thankfully, the New Power Generation (20.30, Maas) in order to pay a tribute to the hero of many a NSJ-artist and visitor. (…) ” But there is also enough to notice.” (…) “A lot of NPG members appear to be without the presence of the Prince, suddenly, the session musicians without control, unnecessary slordigheidsfouten as a result.”

Jamiroquai

The NRC gives no stars

“In the Nile-hall, was singer Jay Kay of Jamiroquai with its futuristic headgear at the center of a often smooth groovend funkfestijn. Straightforward, musically tight, and sunny; a beautiful final dance party for the North Sea Jazz festival 2017.”

The EAR gives no stars

“Jamiroquai is of course the ideal conclusion to a festival like North Sea Jazz. Just like Earth, Wind & Fire is a polished, nostalgic hitmachine. Little L, Space Cowboy, Cosmic Girl. No man in Ahoy who did not, or whose parents are not grew up. Nice and breezy, nice and danceable, not to hard, well-played so well extracting. Other than Earth, Wind & Fire has Jamiroquai also new music that is worth the effort.”
