‘#5xTypical’ is a series of music based interviews with musicians by Karen van Gilst. What do musicians listen to? While cleaning, during sexy time or when working out? Do they have specific songs for specific moments? Or do they listen to music to influence their emotions?

"Actually, this whole record is sentimental for me." - Stephanie Francke (saxphone)

Please don’t stop - Richard Bona


Never will I marry - Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderly

Everyone needs to know this album really!

There’s hope - India Arie

I LOVE India Arie!

Goodbye to love - The Carpenters

Actually, this whole record is sentimental for me. I turned the whole thing gray! And, if I had to choose, I’d choose the song ‘Goodbye to love’.

Never too much - Luther Vandross

This song makes me really happy!

Kika Sprangers

She was winner of the Erasmus Jazzprice in 2012 (and public favourite), she is launching her second album ‘Ripples’ in collaboration with ‘Zennes’ records. Which I shot the cover of. Her music is known by her storytelling compositions. ‘Ripples’ takes you to her hometown in Zeeland (South-Holland) and makes a field trip to new York.
Stephanie Francke Quartet consists of: Stephanie Francke on saxophone, Koen Schalkwijk on piano, Guus Bakker on bass and Niek de Bruijn on drums.

"Stephanie orchestrated a hell of a band. One that plays nuanced, sensitive, but has a groove. It has his own personality and keeps in controle over the matter. What do you want more? I’d say, keep on going!” Eric Vloeimans.
