Wait, stand still, imagine...

On Friday 10th of February 2014 Jeroen van Vliet presented his long-awaited second solo album in a jampacked Paradox. The reviews about this concert were praising:

The compositions have emerged over the years in the context of various projects, this resulted in very diverse impression of introverted and lyrical to intense and passionate.

"Without any exaggeration after listening to this, the only conclusion: almost as good as the a forementioned concert. With these two drives, the powerful concert presentation remains - for ever - till the imaginations speaks"
Jazzenzo, 2014
