Click here for more history Press The international press have called Ineke Vandoorn & Marc van Vugt adventurous, while their concerts have been described as exciting. In their music they manage to avoid the well-worn paths of schools and styles. Critics wrote:
- The ensemble rules while the audience wins.
- The mutual understanding between the three musicians is clear and tangible and the way they interpret standards, 'Nature Boy' for instance, is characteristic. In conclusion: an intriguing singer who uses her talent to sing both originals and standards.
- Behold the name of a group that will surely surprise most of you. Their music is free and inventive, their influences diverse, yet the spirit of jazz is omnipresent.
- This Dutchwoman, with her full and sensual voice, possesses both technical mastery and deep warmth.

Click here for more press Collaborations Ineke Vandoorn & Marc van Vugt like to be challenged by other musicians. Not only have they been playing together with guests like sax players Andy Sheppard (UK), Paul van Kemenade (NL), Sylvain Beuf (FR), trumpettists Kenny Wheeler (UK) Eric Vloeimans (NL), trombonist Robin Eubanks (USA), keyboard player Jozef Dumoulin (Fr) and singer David Linx (Fr). But their projects have also involved working together with a full orchestra (the Dutch 'Metropole orkest' conducted by Vince Mendoza'), a classic chamber choir (Het Nederlands Kamerkoor), two classical vocal ensembles (amarcord (G) and Wishfull Singing (NL), a project in which they temporarily merged with the Michiel Braam trio and a project with poet Ingmar Heytze (NL).
CD's After having released three CD's under the name Vandoorn, playing their own compositions, Ineke Vandoorn & Marc van Vugt marketed a fourth. This Vandoorn CD, with trumpettist Eric Vloeimans, features inventive interpretations of jazz standards. At the 2001 North Sea Jazz Festival this CD, titled Love Is A Golden Glue, was awarded with the Edison Jazz Award (the Dutch equivalent of a Grammy). The Vandoorn CD 'Uncovered' (with saxplayer Paul van Kemenade) was nominated twice for this important Dutch jazz prize. In 2006 their CD 'Dawn' was released featuring nine original songs played by Marc and Ineke with the Dutch 'Metropole Orkest' conducted by Vince Mendoza and John Clayton. In 2013 the CD WHITE will be released; 10 intimate songs played in different line-ups with a.o. Andy Sheppard, Sylvain Beuf, Het Nederlands Kamerkoor and Big Bizar Habit.

On the invitation of the Dutch State, Ineke Vandoorn and Marc van Vugt have been living and working for two years from the former studio of Theo van Doesburg, artist and founder of De Stijl, in Meudon, Paris. This is where they wrote the music for the beautiful Vandoesburgsuite (Timeless records cdsjp 470).
