Reinier Voet and Pigalle44, 2008
Pigalle CD 244
The fourth CD of Reinier Voet & Pigalle44: “Mistral”. Reinier plays both acoustic as well as amplified guitar. Featured are Rob Stoop on the accordion and Olaf Hoeks on tenorsax. A very special “Parisian/French Jazz/Manouche’ repertoire. All the possible line-ups are used: duo, trio, quartets and even quintet.

Dream Dancing – George Washingmachine with Reinier Voet and Pigalle44

2008 Pigalle CD 344
The latest CD is a wonderful team effort of George and Pigalle44. George gives a personal swing to the already swinging combination of Pigalle44. It demonstrates the contemporary and the nostalgic in the same breath. Original Jazz standards are the medium for George’s violin and voice, and Reinier’s melodies. Indulge in the bluest kind of blues with the English version of ‘Nuages’…

‘Bric a Brac’

Reinier Voet and Pigalle44, 2002
Pigalle CD144
This is our second cd. Again Simon on the doublebass. Accordionplayer Gert Wantenaar plays as a guest on five tunes. Both with Simon and with Gert I play duet (I am happy with, by the way).

Our Gypsy Rapsody

Reinier Voet and Pigalle44, 2000
Pigalle CD 044
The first cd I produced with Jan Brouwer. Four tracks with violinist and singer George Washingmachine. Our bassplayer is Simon Planting. Also some guitar duo tunes. Recorded at home with my Roland ‘portastudio’ (as also the next two cd’s of Pigalle44).

‘Jazz Manouche Volume 4′





Reinier with Pigalle44 with 1 tune: New York City
Wagram, 2008
On this Jazz Manouche compilation the rarely played tune “New York City” from the album “Mistral” is chosen by San Severino. Something to be proud of because I re-arranged the tune together with tenorsax player Olaf Hoeks, having added a ‘special chorus’ to it and some modulations.






Jelle van Togeren Group
Chamsa CD003
Reinier plays on two tracks: ‘Four Brothers’ and ‘Minor Steps’. On some tracks Robin Nolan is featured soloist. The basic trio on this CD is Jelle van Tongeren on violin, Frank Meester on rhythm guitar and Arnoud van den Berg on double bass.

‘Swing 4 Bop





Reinier Voet and Pigalle44, 2004

The third cd! This is almost a ‘quartet-cd’. Accordionplayer Gert Wantenaar plays on ten tunes. Some trio tunes and a succesful (for me anyway…) multitrack recording with myself and the support of Nick McGuire on the bass.

Absolute fun to record this jazzy swing klezmer cd. Very good fellow musicians, amongst them bandoneon player Dick van der Harst and also Adrie Braat, the fixed bassplayer of the Dutch Swing College Band. Good tunes, traditionals as well as compositions of Marcel Salomon, the
great klezmer clarinettist.
