Ruud Voesten’s “Goesting”: A Modern Jazz Journey into Lust’s Dark Realm

Dutch drummer and composer Ruud Voesten has crafted a mesmerizing musical tale with his second single, “Goesting,” delving into the sin of lust. Inspired by Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, Voesten explores the descent into the ring of Lust, where passion consumes and torments. The song’s dark harmony, tragic melody, and melancholic rhythm captivate the listener from the very beginning.



“Goesting” unfolds with serene piano playing, gradually joined by the haunting double bass lines and the interplay of alto and tenor saxophones. The result is a magical modern jazz journey that transports you to another dimension. The rhythm’s precise touches and the piano’s enchanting lines create an atmosphere both clean and morose, embracing the essence of contemporary improvisation.

Voesten’s musical prowess shines through as he weaves a captivating narrative, evoking the spirits of jazz luminaries like Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Miles Davis, and Brian Blade. His compositional skill and the talents of his bandmates, including Mo van der Does on alto saxophone, Wietse Voermans on tenor saxophone, Koen Schalkwijk on grand piano, and Tijs Klaassen on double bass, elevate “Goesting” to artistic heights.

“Goesting” is a glimpse into the upcoming full record, Ambrosia, scheduled for release on ZenneZ Records in September 2023. As part of this musical exploration of Inferno, Voesten’s composition perfectly captures the longing passion of the sinners in the Lust ring, depicting a lack of fulfillment and peace of mind. Romantic, dark, and tragic, “Goesting” stands as a testament to the power of music to convey complex emotions and narratives.

With its captivating melodies, impeccable musicianship, and thought-provoking inspiration, “Goesting” firmly establishes Ruud Voesten as a talent to watch in the modern jazz scene. Prepare to be transported on a sonic journey like no other.
